Al-Shabaab Executes Somali Elder In Southern Somalia
A Somali elder who was a member of the Somali electoral delegates was on Monday publicly executed by militant group Al-Shabaab in Gamboole village, Middle Shabelle region, Radio Dalsan reports. 93 years old Abshir Nur Hussein was arrested three months ago when he visited the Alshabaab controlled village on a mission to arbitrate between conflicting farmers and pastoralist communities in Middle Shabelle. He was accused by the militant court of being a member of the Somali electoral delegates. Residents of Gamboole witnessed the execution at a public square.
