Gunmen in Somalia have shot dead three elders distributing aid in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Mogadishu

The killings are being linked to a wave of apparently targeted attacks on humanitarian workers. Meanwhile, the World Food Program has warned that it may have to use private security companies to protect its vessels from pirate attacks in Somalia. The agency has been sending food ships without protective escorts after a Dutch naval mission ended in June 2008.
