Somalia slaps terrorists with life in jail for role in attacks

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The Somali Military Court based in Mogadishu on Tuesday has finally sentenced Abdullahi Abdirahman Ahmed and Mohamed Hussein Hassan, two Al-Shabaab members to life in prison.

The two were apprehended after sustaining wounds in an attack carried by Al-Shabaab on Bacadweyn, a key town in the Mudug region earlier this year 2021, according to the court officials. 

Al-Shabaab has engaged in a bitter war with the government forces backed by the community in the area that the two militants have involved. The convicts can appeal against the verdict in 30 days if they are unsatisfied with the sentence.

The Al-Qaida-linked militants have recently taken significant advances in their offensives against the government forces by taking over control of certain key towns, including some in Galmudug.
