Ahmed Ali Hussein, 44, Executed by Al Shabaab

Somalia's Shabaab executes 'US spy'2011-02-01 07:46

Mogadishu - Somalia's al-Qaeda-inspired Shabaab militia publicly executed a man by a firing squad after accusing him of spying for the United States, the insurgents said on Monday.

Ahmed Ali Hussein, 44, was gunned down late on Sunday at one of the rebels' camps in the north of Mogadishu.
  • The group said Hussein had been spying for the CIA in connection with a probe to find the perpetrators of the 1998 US embassy bombings in East Africa.
  • "We know so many people who claim to be Muslim scholars while spying on the Muslims. We will catch them and execute them in front of you like this man who confessed to have been working with the American intelligence agency," said Ali Mohamed Hussein, a Shabaab official.
  • The Shabaab control large swathes of territory in the south and central Somalia and have imposed a strict brand of Islamic laws, with offenders often flogged or executed in public.
