Nun killed in Somalia identified


In Somalia, an Italian Catholic nun killed in an attack that’s been linked to Muslim anger against the Pope has been named as sister Leonella Sgorbati. The nun’s guard also died from gunshot wounds in the latest strike on foreign personnel in the country’s volatile capital, Mogadishu.
