Somali regional authorities in Galkayo town have executed 18 Al-Shabaab militants convicted for the assassinations of elite community leaders over the years, including elders, officers and journalists.
This is the largest single execution of Al-Shabaab fighters in Somalia.
This comes days after the Somali National Army’s commandos destroyed secret bases belonging to Al-Shabaab terrorists in a planned security operation in the Middle Shabelle region.
So far, 14 Shabaab hideouts in the region have been destroyed in the past one month.
