  • Leonella Sgorbati (née le 9 décembre 1940 à Gazzola en Émilie-Romagne et morte le 17 septembre 2006 (à 66 ans) à Mogadiscio en Somalie) est une religieuse italienne morte martyre.
  • Sister Leonella Sgorbati (9 December 1940–17 September 2006) was an Italian Roman Catholic nun who was murdered in Somalia shortly after controversial comments by Pope Benedict XVI concerning Islam.She was born Rosa Maria (Rose Mary) Sgorbati, and she changed her name when she became a nun. Changing one's name at consecration is common in Catholic congregations.Sister Leonella was born in 1940 in Gazzola near Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna, Italy. Since she was a teenager she wished to become a missionary nun, but her mother did not approve the choice and ask her to wait until she would be twenty. When finally sister Leonella was twenty, she said she did not change her mind and joined the Consolata Missionary Sisters in San Fre, Cuneo in May 1963 and took her perpetual vows in November 1972. During this time she followed nursing course in England (1966–1968), and in September 1970 she was appointed to Kenya. From then until 1983 she served alternately at Consolata Hospital Mathari, Nyeri, and Nazareth Hospital in Kiambu on the outskirts of Nairobi. In mid-1983, Sister Leonella started her advanced studies in nursing and in 1985 became the principal tutor at the school of nursing attached to Nkubu Hospital, Meru, Kenya.In November 1993 she was elected regional superior of the Consolata Missionary Sisters in Kenya, a duty she performed for six years. After a sabbatical year, in 2001 she spent several months in Mogadishu, looking at the possibility of setting up a nursing school in the hospital run by the SOS Children's Village organization. Hermann Gmeiner School of Registered Community Nursing opened in 2002, with Sister Leonella in charge. The first 34 nurses graduated from the school this year, awarded certificates and diplomas by the World Health Organization because Somalia has had no government since 1991.Sister Leonella was keen to train tutors for the nursing school. She returned to Kenya with three of her newly graduated nurses, to register them for further training at a medical training college. She faced difficulties in obtaining her own re-entry visa to Mogadishu, due to the new rules of the Islamic courts that now control the city and its environs. She managed to return to Mogadishu on 13 September 2006.Four days later she was gunned down outside her children's hospital. Her bodyguard, Mohamed Osman Mahamud, was also killed. The attack was believed by someone to be in response to the comments made by Pope Benedict XVI during the Regensburg lecture, but this has never been absolutely confirmed, additionally, several humanitarian workers and Christian volunteers have already been murdered by Islamic gunmen in Somalia in the recent years, including Italian bishop Salvatore Colombo shot dead during celebrating mass in Mogadishu in 1989, Graziella Fumagalli, an Italian medical doctor, killed in 1995 in the anti-TBC Center she was running; the UN Nansen Refugee Award winner Annalena Tonelli assassinated in 2003 in a unique relief center in Borama, after 33 years of service to the poorest, and Dick and Enid Eyeington in 2003.On September 17, 2006, two gunmen emerged from behind nearby taxis and kiosks and shot sister Leonella Sgarbati in her back after about 30 years of aid work in Africa. She was rushed to the SOS Hospital and died shortly thereafter. Her last words apparently were Italian: "Perdono; perdono." (English: “I forgive; I forgive.”)Somalian officials vowed justice for the nun's slaying. Two suspects were arrested and investigations were launched by Somalia's Islamic Courts Union.
  • Leonella Sgorbati (Gazzola, 9 dicembre 1940 – Mogadiscio, 17 settembre 2006) è stata una religiosa italiana.Suor Leonella, al secolo Rosa Maria Sgorbati, nacque nel 1940 a Gazzola, in provincia di Piacenza, dove ha trascorso la giovinezza, è entrata nel 1963 nell'ordine delle Suore Missionarie della Consolata a Sanfrè, in provincia di Cuneo, dove ha preso i voti perpetui nel novembre 1972. Dopo aver frequentato la scuola infermieri nel Regno Unito (1966 - 1968), si è trasferita in Kenya nel settembre 1972, dove ha prestato servizio alternativamente al Consolata Hospital Mathari, Nyeri, e al Nazareth Hospital di Kiambu vicino a Nairobi. Nel 1983 suor Leonella cominciò gli studi superiori di scienze infermieristiche e nel 1985 divenne il più importante tutor della scuola infermieri incorporata al Nkubu Hospital, Meru.Nel novembre 1993 è stata eletta superiore regionale delle Suore Missionarie della Consolata del Kenya, compito che ha svolto per sei anni. Dopo un anno sabbatico ha trascorso alcuni mesi all'ospedale pediatrico di Mogadiscio, per studiare la possibilità di aprire una scuola infermieri nell'ospedale retto dall'organizzazione SOS Villaggi dei Bambini (SOS Children's Village). La scuola ha aperto nel 2002, con l'operato di suor Leonella. Le prime 34 infermiere si sono diplomate nel 2006, certificate dall'Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità, poiché la Somalia è priva di governo dal 1991.Poiché Suor Leonella desiderava formare altri tutor per la scuola infermieri, ritornò in Kenya con tre nuove infermiere diplomate per iscriverle ad un corso della scuola medica. Al ritorno ebbe difficoltà ad ottenere un visto per il rientro a Mogadiscio, per le nuove regole previste dalle corti islamiche che ora controllano la città e i suoi dintorni. Rientrata a Mogadiscio il 13 settembre 2006, il 17 settembre è stata uccisa a colpi d'arma da fuoco all'esterno dell'ospedale pediatrico, assieme alla guardia del corpo. I due assassini si erano nascosti dietro un taxi, da cui le hanno sparato nella schiena. La suora è stata trasportata al Pronto Soccorso, ma è morta poco dopo. Le autorità somale stanno cercando gli autori del delitto e sono stati arrestati due sospetti. L'omicidio avviene dopo altre uccisioni di italiani sia volontari laici e che personale religioso in Somalia: Graziella Fumagalli, medico, uccisa il 22 ottobre 1995 nel Centro antitubercolosi della Caritas Italiana a Merca; Annalena Tonelli, uccisa da estremisti islamici il 5 ottobre 2003 a Borama, dopo 33 anni di dedizione agli ultimi; il vescovo Salvatore Colombo, francescano, ucciso il 9 luglio 1989 a Mogadiscio durante la messa .
  • Leonella Sgorbati (Gazzola, 9 december 1940 - Mogadishu, 17 september 2006) was een Italiaanse rooms-katholieke non behorende tot de kloosterorde Missionarissen van de Vertroosting (begin 20e eeuw in Italië ontstaan en daar hetende Missionari della Consolata).Sgorbati was sinds 2002 werkzaam in een kinderziekenhuis in de Somalische hoofdstad. Halverwege september 2006, op een zondagochtend, werd ze voor dit ziekenhuis door twee mannen neergeschoten; ze stierf korte tijd daarna op de operatietafel. Ook haar lijfwacht kwam hierbij om het leven. Twee verdachten werden later gearresteerd.Deze moordaanslag wordt wel in verband gebracht met de gewelddadige reactie in de islam op de Regensburg lezing van paus Benedictus XVI. Een Somalische islamitische geestelijke leider had als gevolg hiervan opgeroepen tot wraakacties. Wellicht dat zij daarvan het slachtoffer was geworden maar zeker is dat niet.Mogadishu staat bekend om het vele geweld dat er plaatsvindt. In juni 2006 werd de Zweedse journalist Martin Adler daar eveneens om het leven gebracht.Leonella Sgorbati overleed op 65-jarige leeftijd.
  • Sr. Leonella Sgorbati, geboren als Rosa Sgorbati (* 9. Dezember 1940 in Gazzola bei Piacenza; † 17. September 2006 in Mogadischu) war eine italienische Ordensschwester.Rosa Sgorbati trat 1963 in den Orden der Consolata Missionsschwestern in Sanfrè, Provinz Cuneo, ein. Sie erhielt den Ordensnamen Leonella und legte 1972 die Ewigen Gelübde ab. Nach einer Krankenschwesterausbildung in England von 1966 bis 1968 wurde sie 1970 nach Kenia entsandt. Von 1993 bis 1999 war sie die Provinzobere der Kenianischen Consolata Missionsschwestern. Nach einem Sabbatjahr ging sie 2001 nach Mogadischu in Somalia, um dort für das Krankenhaus des SOS-Kinderdorfes eine Krankenpflegeschule zu eröffnen; seit 2002 war sie Leiterin dieser Hermann Gmeiner-Schule. Am Mittag des 17. September 2006, wenige Tage nach Papst Benedikts XIV. Regensburger Rede, wurde sie beim Überqueren einer Straße von vier Kugeln in den Rücken getroffen und verstarb kurz darauf im Krankenhaus. Ihr Leibwächter wurde ebenfalls getötet. Sr. Leonella hatte Personenschutz, da bereits seit Monaten Angriffe gewaltbereiter radikaler Muslime gegen Christen befürchtet wurden. Ihre letzten Worte im Krankenhaus waren „Perdono, perdono!“ („Ich vergebe, ich vergebe!“). Der Mordanschlag wurde verschiedentlich als Reaktion auf die Regensburger Rede des Papstes gewertet. Es wurden zwei Verdächtige verhaftet, die gerichtlichen Untersuchungen blieben jedoch bislang ohne Ergebnis. Papst Benedikt XVI. drückte am Tag nach dem Mord in einem Beileidstelegramm an die Missionsschwestern seine tiefe Erschütterung aus und würdigte Schwester Leonella bei seiner Ansprache zum Angelusgebet am folgenden Sonntag. Bestattet wurde sie in Nairobi, wo sie mehr als dreißig Jahre gewirkt hatte.Das Kreuz von Schwester Leonella befindet sich seit Oktober 2008 in der Kirche San Bartolomeo all’Isola in Rom, die den Märtyrern des 20. Jahrhunderts geweiht ist.
