Shabaab Executes 3 For Allegedly Working With Somali and Kenya Government

Al-Shabaab has executed three men whom they accused of working with Somali and Kenya governments.

A court belonging to the group in the town of Kamsuma in the Lower Jubba region convicted the men on Saturday.

The men were executed by a firing squad in public after they were reportedly found guilty by the group’s court of spying in what was described as a hurriedly constituted hearing held in front of residents.

Al-Shabaab often compels locals to gather and witness the executions to discourage anyone who may think of betraying their cause. The victims were identified as Muse Hussein Siyad (31), who a member of the US-trained unit, was arrested in between Afgoye and Wanlawayn towns.

Hussein Mohamed Arsal (20), who was said to be a member of Jubbaland state forces, was nabbed from Barsanguni locality.

Falir Yarow Ali (75) accused of spying for Kenya government. It is not the first time Al-Shabaab has executed its members suspected of spying, most of them foreigners.
