SIX men are expected to stand trial later this year charged with shooting dead the son of a mosque’s Imam.

Mohamud Mohamud, 30, Ahmed Ahmed, 28, Cadil Huseen, 22, Hussein Ali, 26, Liban Ahmed, 29, and Said Fadal, 32, today appeared at the High Court in Glasgow.

They are accused of the murder of 25-year-old Mohamed Abdi in Willowbrae on May 26 last year.

It is alleged Mr Abdi – whose father is an Imam at the Central Mosque – was shot with a sub-machine pistol and a revolver.

The six accused are further said to have been involved in the attempted murder of Mohamed Farah and Abdulrakim Abdelrahman during the same incident.

Mohamud and the others also face allegations of assault, being concerned in the supply of cocaine and a number of firearms charges.

Lawyers for the six yesterday entered not guilty pleas on their behalf. Lord Turnbull continued the case for a further hearing next month.

The court was told a trial date had been provisionally identified for late April.
