Somalia: Two young men executed by firing squad in Mogadishu

Mogadishu, January 7 (hornnews24) – Somalia’s military court on Monday executed two men in Mogadishu for killing an elderly man in 2016.

Court officials said the men: Hasan Ali Hasan Kerow (25) and Abdirahman Isseh Ali Fidow (22) were found guilty of being behind the murder of Hilowleh Hefow Husein in 2016. Both of the men pleaded not guilty.

Somali government’s military court often carries out death penalties against men accused of being members of Alshabaab Islamic fighters without enough evidences.

According to human rights watch, Somalia’s military courts since 2011 have tried hundreds of people beyond the courts’ legal mandate or in proceedings that fall short of international fair trial standards.
