At least two Doctors Without Borders workers were shot at the aid group's office in the Somali capital today, and at least one person was killed. An employee of the group lost his job yesterday, and came back today to carry out the attack, according to another employee. The AP reports that two aid workers were hit and one was killed, but details are sketchy and a security official says three workers were shot. (More Doctors Without Borders stories.)
