Somalia: Al-Shabaab Sentence 3 Men to Death in Barawe

Three men were killed today by Al-Shabaab after being accused of spying for the Somali Federal Government and the United States.

Mohamed Hassan Ali was a 28 year old man suspected of spying for the Chief of the National Intelligence & Security Agency. Shuriye Farah Sabriye a 47 year old was accused of working for the Somali Intelligence department. The last of the men killed was Abdi Najib Shire Barre who was blamed for passing on viable from the spiritual leaders of Al-Shabaab.

Shuriye Farah Sabriye was a former leader of the Islamic Party for the Hiiraan region and lived in Halgan until he was transferred to the Barawe district of the Lower Shabelle region.

The governor of the Lower Shabelle region for Al-Shabaab spoke at the scene and said that the accused were found guilty of working with the 'enemies' and sending them credible information leading to future Al-Shabaab tactics.
