Somalia's military court on 31 October 2022 executed three Al-Shabaab hitmen in the latest move which comes just a day after the militants raided downtown Mogadishu, killing over 100 people while injuring scores, in an attack that has been widely condemned globally. The three Al-Shabaab hitmen were convicted of attacking and killing 15 innocent civilians between 2018 and 2020, and their appeals were rejected by the same court. Reports indicate that the convicts were executed by the Somali National Army firing squad early on 31 October in Mogadishu, the latest series of executions carried out by the government against militants. Hardcore criminals in the country are usually tried and executed by the military court.
Those executed were Hassan Ali Moallim Barre who was convicted for detonating a car bomb in the Wadajir market in November 2018 which killed 12, Nur Ibrahim Mahad-Alle was found guilty of delivering an IED that killed Mahaas deputy mayor in 2019 and Isak Keerow Adan, a grenade thrower for killing two in Suuq Ba’ad and Weydow in 2020.
