Somalia: 43 Shebab militants sentenced to death in Somalia

Mogadishu, Somalia (PANA) - The military court of the semi-autonomous government of Puntland, Somalia, has sentenced 43 Shebab jihadists to death for carrying out attacks earlier this year in the north-east, Somali News Agency reported.

The Attorney General of Puntland Harsi Abdallah said "the court sentenced to death 43 shebab militants who carried out terrorist attacks against our region and killed soldiers’’.

''All the convicts are over 18 years old, so they are adults according to the Constitution of Somalia,'' he said.

PANA reports that between 300 and 500 fighters of the Shebab jihadist movement clashed with local authorities in the Sahel region of Puntland, northeastern Somalia, in March.
