Somalia executes two men over Mogadishu attacks

Somalia has executed two men convicted of participating in killings and bomb attacks in the capital Mogadishu, state radio reported today.

Anshur Abukar and Mohamed Ali Barrow were accused of being al Shabaab members, Radio Mogadishu said.

Al-Shabab has been fighting since 2007 to topple Somalia’s fragile government, which is backed by a 20,000-strong African Union force, known as Amisom.

They were executed by firing squad. The two men were convicted in conducting multiple attacks including one that resulted in the death of Universal TV journalist Awil Dahir Salat.
