The Somali government has dismissed threats issued by Al-shabaab terror group to execute Kenyan hostages in Somalia unless terror suspects held in Kenya are released. Somalia ambassador to Kenya Mohammed Ali says the threats are a desperate move by the group now that their government is liberated by AMISOM troops. He is demanding the release of three Kenyans held in Somalia.
