Madagascar: A man shot dead during an attack on a residential area of Antananarivo by armed men
The residential area Antsahakely-Ambohitrarahaba in Antananarivo, capital of Madagascar has been shaken by the assault of a dozen armed men with Kalashnikovs and automatic pistol on Monday night.

The small gang was heavily armed to commit thefts of valuable objects and cash in the housing sector. They did not hesitate to use their weapons against all those who have opposed them a resistance or who lay in their path.

One resident was shot and killed on his entrance porch and two other people were injured by firearms in this commando operation that lasted less than five minutes.

The police quickly dispatched to the scene were able to get hold of six members of the small group, four men and two women. Before their arrest, suspects used their new handguns on the police to try to escape the police.

A very restless night that will be remembered by the inhabitants of the residential area of Antsahakely-Ambohitrarahaba especially with regard of the small booty collected (a computer laptop, some gold jewelry and 240 euro) for such outburst of violence.
