This kind of thing happens alot in Africa. According to,

The intruders initially seized members of the cartoonist’s family, using them as hostages while they uttered threats against him. Then one of the intruders hit Obe Ess hard on the head with the butt of his revolver and was about to beat him when neighbours intervened and the intruders fled. One of them was shot as they fled.
