Islamists Behead Two Christian Women in Somalia


Radical Islamists publicly beheaded two Christian women in southeastern Somalia, the Morning Star News reported.

Sadia Ali Omar, a 41-year-old mother of two, and Osman Mohamoud Moge, her 35-year-old cousin, are the latest victims of Al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based terror group with a reputation for executing Christians this way.

The beheadings took place on March 4 in the port town of Barawa.

Al-Shabaab jihadists forced the townspeople, including Omar's two daughters, ages 8 and 15, to watch the executions, which took place in the center of town. The youngest child reportedly screamed for someone to save her mother.

The Islamists warned they intend to "wipe out any underground Christian" living in their territory.

A friend helped relocate the children out of concern for their safety.

"We are afraid that the Al-Shabaab might continue monitoring these two children and eventually kill them just like their mother," one resident reportedly said.

Al-Shabaab terrorists were behind last September's attack at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, which killed at least 67 people and injured many more, the Morning Star News reported.
