19 year old Bashir Farah Mumin lies on a operating table in Galcayo's hospital. He was shot during a gunfight between Al-Shabaab and Pro TFG (transitional federal government) militias at a checkpoint between Galcayo and Mogadishu. The bullet was lodged in his abdomen. The surgeon managed to locate the bullet with help of an x-ray and removing it turned out to be easy but, finding and closing the small holes in the intestines took many hours. However, the day following his surgery Bashir was recovering well.
