Al-Qaeda branch in Somalia on Sunday 5th February 2017 executed four own operatives on suspicion that they were spying.
The four men who have been fighting alongside the Shabaab terrorist group were accused to be double agents, spying for the country's Western-backed government (Somalia), the US and neighbouring Kenya.
The men were executed publicly in Jamame district, lower Jubba region, about 70 kilometers (43 miles) north of Kismayu after allegedly being found guilty by the militant court.
Al-Shabaab the Salafist jihadist fundamentalist group based in East Africa and is headquartered in Jilib Somalia has executed many of its Kenyan fighters on suspicion that they are spying for their country.
The terror group pledged its allegiance to Al-Qaeda in 2012. The group was designated as a terrorist organization by the US in 2008. Countries like the UK, Canada, the UAE, Australia and New Zealand have also designated it as a terror outfit.
Al-Shabaab, like other Islamist terrorist groups, is known for brutal killings, executions, floggings and amputations that are imposed by their strict Sharia court (Islamic court).
