CAPE TOWN - The International Relations Department on Monday said it is still trying to get more information on the death of a man, thought to be a South African citizen in Somalia.

The man died apparently after being shot last Friday.

The department cannot say too much at this stage about the incident.

They were informed about the man's death but is trying to establish if he was in fact a South African.

It is alleged the man was involved in an anti-piracy training course when he was shot dead by unknown gunmen.
