Islamic terrorist who murdered five journalists is executed in Somalia

This is the moment a terrorist convicted of murdering five journalists was tied to a wooden post before being executed by a Somali firing squad. Hassan Hanafi, a former media officer for the Somali Islamist group al Shabaab, was tied up at a police academy square in the capital Mogadishu today before being shot. He was sentenced to death by military judges in March having been extradited from Kenya a year ago following his arrest in 2014.

Somalia was plunged into anarchy in the early 1990s following the toppling of military dictator Mohamed Siad Barre, and has been struggling to rebuild. Hanafi, 30, had said he joined al Shabaab in 2008 when he was working as a journalist for a local Somali broadcaster. He was arrested in neighbouring Kenya last year and then returned to Somalia for trial.
