ROBBERS sparked mayhem outside a Somaliland mosque power when a power cut struck.

They threw a stray cat into the crowd. The result: a stampede.

They were then free to rob the worshippers.

Had a stray cat been thrown into Church of England hall, worshippers would have been glad of the company, and help with the singing.

To Hargeisa’s Ali Matan Mosque where people are massed to watch a sermon by Sheikh Moustafa Hagi Ismael Hassan.

A short circuit cast the downtown area into darkness.

The sheikh says gangsters hurled a feral cat into the centre of the crowd, causing a commotion. During the stampede, the robbers grabbed mobile phones and money.

“A number of people were wounded, most of them beggars,” Hassan told said. “I’ve sent them to hospital for treatment.”

The cat was last seen making off laughing and talking with a mouse
