MOGADISHU (Reuters) - A gunman shot dead a foreign aid worker and wounded another at a Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) office in Mogadishu on Thursday, following an argument, an MSF official, a nurse and the police said.

Police spokesman Abdullahi Barise said the gunman had been taken into custody. A Reuters witness said the gunman was dragged from the building, still holding a pistol.

The MSF official, who declined to be named, said the Somali gunman had worked for the aid agency. The nurse said the wounded aid worker had been taken to hospital.
