Somalia's Shebab Display Bodies of Enemy Combatants
[An Nahar] Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked Shebab Islamic fascisti on Saturday put on show the bodies of four "enemy" soldiers killed in combat in their stronghold of Kismayo, in southern Somalia, witnesses told Agence La Belle France Presse.
"We saw the bodies of four men in uniform put on show in Kismayo by the Shebab," a local man in the port town, Hassan Abdi Mohamud, told AFP by telephone.
"Two of the dead were Somalis fighting for the transition federal government and the other two were Kenyan soldiers," he claimed.
The bodies had been brought back from Afmadow, some 120 kilometers from Kismayo, where the Shebab launched an offensive on Friday, after being forced out of the town last May by the advance of the Kenyan army.
Witness Mohamed Abdi Mohadmu said, "The bodies were brought to Kismayo during the night and inhabitants were called out to come and see them."
