SOMALIA: SOLDIER EXECUTED IN MOGADISHU OVER PUPIL MURDER

January 6, 2014: A firing squad has executed a soldier in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, after a military court convicted him of murdering a school pupil last year.
A crowd, including children, saw the execution at the police academy in the city, according to photographs posted on state-run Radio Mogadishu's website.
Radio Mogadishu reported that more soldiers found guilty in other cases by the military are expected to face a firing squad in the coming days.
Maslah Isse Jimaan was convicted of shooting dead a pupil, Omar Mohamed Ahmed, in the capital's main market, Bakara, during a security force operation last year.
A firing squad of more than 10 policemen and soldiers are seen in the photographs taking positions, before Jimaan, blindfolded and tied to a pole, was shot dead in front of the crowd.
Jimaan had violated the military code and had faced justice for this, the military court chairman, Libaan Ali Yarow, told the BBC Somali Service.
Mr Yarow said he was unaware that the execution had taken place in front of children. (Sources: bbc.co.uk, 06/01/2014)
