Police believed six Birmingham men travelled to Edinburgh to kill man charged with drug dealing
A Somalian drug gang from Birmingham have been linked to the execution-style murder of an imam’s son in Scotland.
Police believe up to six men travelled to Edinburgh to target Mohammed Omar Abdi, 25, who was facing drug dealing charges after being caught with crack cocaine earlier this month.
Mr Abid, whose father Omar Abdi is a part-time volunteer imam at Edinburgh’s Central Mosque, was found seriously injured in Edinburgh following reports of a car crash, shortly after 1am on Sunday. He died later in hospital.
