Somalia: Shabbab Insurgents Enforce Strict Version of Islamic Law

KISMAYU – The Shabab insurgents have imposed their strict version of Islamic law on much of the south of Somalia and parts of Mogadishu, the capital, Reuters reported on October 9. The Shabab amputated a foot and a hand from each of two young men accused of robbery in the southern port of Kismayu on October 9. A third man who was sentenced to the same punishment had only a foot cut off, because the insurgents realized that one of his hands was disabled.
