The Al Qaeda-linked terror group fighting to overthrow the transition government in Somalia, Al-Shabab, on Wednesday noon executed two young men in Baidao town (south-west) for reportedly being spies, witnesses told APA on Thursday.
The fighters used microphones calling upon the residents to come to watch the incident which took place in the town's play ground.
They shot the young men several times on the head. The young men were accused of spying the Islamists for the Somali Transitional Government (TFG), the Ethiopian and Kenyan governments.
This is not the first time Al-shabab executes people accusing them of being their enemies' spies.
Al-Shabab-owned courts order execution, amputation, stoning and flogging of people that the courts accuse of committing a crime against the Islamic law.
Somalia has had no functioning central government since 1991. The al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab and its allies control much of the country’s southern part.
However, Al-Shabab is recently losing more grounds to the TFG and the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) troops.
