Somali executed for ‘apostasy’

Posted in News by Skepdude on January 16, 2009

An Islamist militia has executed a Somali politician who they accused of changing his religion by working with non-Muslim Ethiopian forces.

An Islamist spokesman in the port of Kismayo told the BBC that Abdirahman Ahmed was shot dead on Thursday.

Mr Ahmed had worked with Kismayo’s former warlord – the MP Barre Hiraale – who is accused of attempting to retake the city with Ethiopian backing.

He is believed to be the first politician executed by the Islamists.
