#2  hard to get straight if he is still alive or not. there's not much that Al Shebaab says that you can take as gospel. if he's alive now ... they will probably execute him after Friday prayers.

i hope the French hit Al Shebaab very hard ... if they go thru with this execution. Load some heavy bombs onto some airplanes. Make it hurt!
