Somalia: Alshabab shot an old man in front of a huge crowd

Alshabab fighters have on Tuesday afternoon shot dead an old man in his late 60s in an open ground in Kuntuwarey district in the lower shabelle region of Somalia.

The Alshabab fighters went round the district with loudspeaker instructing the local residents to come out for the execution of the old man.

The Alshabab fighters alleged the old man of being witchcraft, but they have not shown any evidences related with the alleged crime. The Alshabab judge who passed the verdict merely said that the witchcraft has confessed to be involved in magic activities for years and has been making money out of that profession.
