Galkayo (SD) – Puntland Armed Forces Court has sentenced five people to death after they were found to be members of Al-Shabaab.

The convicted men are Mohamed Hashi Mumin (Abu-Dayib), Abdulkadir Ahmed Ummal (Abu-Abdalla), Mohamed Ali Awke (Jeri), Mohamed Abdullahi Ayanle (Abbeyle) and Qasim Jaylani Al-Turabi.
