Armed gunmen stormed into the International Committee of the Red Cross compound in Somalia's capital and abducted a German nurse on its staff, the aid group said late Wednesday.The kidnapping of the woman in Mogadishu was the latest in a series of targeted attacks on aid workers in the long-chaotic Horn of Africa nation. The targeting of aid workers has sent shockwaves through the aid community in Somalia, which is one of the world's most dangerous places for humanitarian groups.At least 30 aid workers were killed in 2016 and 2017, the United Nations has reported.
