Somalia: Islamic extremists behead female Christian and her cousin

Islamic extremists from the rebel Al Shabaab militia last week publicly beheaded a mother of two girls and her cousin in southeastern Somalia after discovering they were Christians, sources were quoted as saying by the Morning Star News in a Mar. 14 article.

Witness the executions identified the victims as Sadia Ali Omar, age 41, and her 35-year-old cousin, Osman Mohamoud Moge.

An Al Shabaab militant announced, “We know these two people are Christians who recently came back from Kenya – we want to wipe out any underground Christian living inside of mujahidin [jihadists’] area,” according to an area resident whose name is undisclosed for security reasons.

The two girls witnessed the brutal attack and execution, screaming out for someone to help and save their mother.

A friend helped the girls, whose names are withheld, to relocate to another area states the post.

“We are afraid that the Al Shabaab might continue monitoring these two children and eventually kill them just like their mother,” the area resident said.

The militants from Al Shabaab, a Muslim group which has vowed to rid the country of the Christian fellowships, became suspicious of Omar and Moge due to their irregular attendance at Friday mosque prayers, sources said.
