Somali executed for ‘apostasy’
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.
