Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked militant group has said that it has killed three Somali men for spying allegations.
The execution was carried out in the port town of Barawe on Friday evening, which is some 180km (110 miles) south of the capital Mogadishu. It’s one of the few strongholds still under the control of al-Shabab.
This is the latest in a spate of public executions carried out by the terrorist group.
A multitude was summoned to witness the pronouncement of the guilty verdict and the gunning down of the three men.
According to the judges from the Islamist group, all the men were convicted of spying for the Somali Federal Government Intelligence agency.
Earlier this month, it executed three men which were also accused of spying for the Intelligence agencies of the Somali government and Puntland.
The Officials threatened that ‘’anyone’’ found of involved in similar cases will face same punishment.
Al-Shabab is under pressure from African Union forces and Somali troops, having lost ten towns including key strongholds in the past three weeks.
