11 arrests have been made so far and police say they are still trying to identify other suspects.

Student Hamdi had been set to enrole in college and her death has sparked huge protests around the country.

In a statement, police said: “We have arrested 11 people over the recent rape case in Wabari neighbourhood in Mogadishu and efforts to track and identify other suspects are ongoing.”
