Authorities in Somalia’s semi-autonomous region on Monday executed three convicted al-Shabaab suspects for alleged membership in the armed extremist group al-Shabaab and plotting attacks in the stable region, officials said.
Three men were executed by firing squad after a military tribunal found them guilty of carrying out attacks in the region blamed on al-Shabaab extremists.
‘’ All of them have been found guilty of being members of the terrorists,’’ said the Minister of Security Hassan Osman Alore.
The alleged members were sentenced to death by the court last month.
In recent years, Puntland authorities have launched a massive crackdown on the network and its military has sentenced members and other individuals linked to the terror group tough punishments such as death penalty.
