Al Qaeda linked Islamist group executes two teenage girls in Somalia by firing squad
London, Oct. 29 (ANI): An Al Qaeda-linked Islamist group has executed two teenage girls in Somalia by firing squad.
According to the Daily Mail, Al Shahbab leader Sheik Mohamed Ibrahim sentenced the girls to death in the town of Belet Weyne for spying for government soldiers.
Abdiwali Aden, a witness, said that al-Shabab militamen had walked through the western Somalia town, informing residents about the pending executions by loudspeaker and ordering everyone to attend.
Ayan Mohamed Jama, 18, and Huriyo Ibrahim, 15, were brought before hundreds of resident.
Ten masked men then opened fire yesterday on the girls, who were blindfolded, after they were sentenced.
As the girls were shot, they shouted 'there is no God but Allah', according to witnesses. One woman fainted as they were killed.
Al-Shabab has carried out several whippings, amputations and executions to enforce its own strict interpretation of Islam. (ANI)
