Tragedy As Military Soldier Shoots Dead His Three Colleagues At An Airport In Somalia

Uganda army has launched investigations into an incident at the Mogadishu airport base where three soldiers were shot dead by their colleague.

The soldier ran amok and shot three colleagues dead over an unidentified issue.

All four were part of the force guarding the Mogadishu Airport.

Following the incident, the soldier was arrested and will be flown to Uganda to face military court martial.

The Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) spokesperson, Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye, said the motive of the shooting had not yet been identified. Kulayigye stated that they will investigate whether the soldier was stressed or had a mental problem.

The “invisible wounds” of combat-related PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) affects not only the soldier, but also those around him or her.

PTSD is a serious physiological mental disorder that can be life threatening if left untreated. PTSD’s symptoms range from nightmares and hallucinations to anxiety and inability to control emotions, and is often accompanied by alcoholism and substance abuse.
