A Turkish aid worker was wounded on Tuesday in a firefight between rival clans in Somalia, a Turkish aid agency said.

The worker with the Turkish international development aid agency TIKA was wounded while travelling with a group of Somali lawmakers monitoring aid distribution in the central city of Galkayo, capital of the Mudug region 750 km northeast of Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

Polat was rushed to a nearby hospital in Galkayo.

TIKA runs a wide array of development projects in Somalia.

The southern part of Galkayo is administered by Galmudug, an autonomous region of central Somalia, while the Puntland State controls the northern part of the city.
