Somalian Islamic radicals publicly chop off hands and legs of alleged thieves

In an aincident in the Somalian capital, Mogadishu, pro-Al Queda insurgents 25 JUN 09 used a machete to slice off a hand and a foot from each of four men accused of stealing mobile phones and guns.

An ad-hoc court set up by the hardline al-Shabaab movement had earlier this week found the men, aged 18 to 25, guilty.

?We have carried out this sentence under the Islamic religion and we will punish like this everyone who carries out these acts,? The Scotsman quoted al-Shabaab official Sheikh Ali Mohamud Fidow, as saying.
