Two Kenyans are among six men publicly executed by Al-Shabaab militants in Somalia for allegedly spying for intelligence agencies.
The six men they accused of spying, including one they claimed helped kill their supreme leader in a US drone strike, the Al-Qaeda-linked group and local sources said Saturday.
Four of the executions took place Friday evening in the village of Bulofay, in the Bay region in the southwest of the country, the sources said.
Three of the men were shot by firing squad while the fourth, accused of helping the United States to kill Shabaab leader Ahmed Godane in September 2014, was decapitated.
“The Islamic court in the Bay and Bakool regions carried out” the executions of “four spies who worked for the US and Kenyan Intelligence Agencies,” the group said in a statement on a pro-Shabaab website.
“Mohamed Adan Nur Hassan, one of the spies, was responsible for the airstrike that killed” Godane.
COLLABORATING WITH AGENCIES
Two Kenyans were also executed on Friday in the Jubbada Dhexe region, also in the southwest, for allegedly helping to kill Shabaab leaders in Kenya, the group said in a separate statement.
It said one of them was accused of collaborating with Kenyan, British, US and Israeli intelligence services, while the other only with Kenya’s secret service.
The Shabaab was pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011 but continues to carry out attacks on military, political and civilian targets aimed at undermining the internationally-backed Somali government.
In recent months they have claimed attacks on bases of the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia (Amisom).
The United States has in recent years launched numerous drone strikes against Shabaab leaders, including the strike that killed Godane.

The elections are taking place in six regions of Somaliland, namely Awdal, Sahil, Marodi-Jeeh, Toghdeer, Sanaag and Sool.

“We agreed that the country should hold elections as soon as possible and that any form of extension should be abolished,” read part of the joint statement by HirShabelle and Galmudug.
Southwest leader Abdiaziz laftagaren also opposed the term extension of the President just an hour after Galmudug and HirShabelle released a joint statement.
The move by the three regional states allied to President was welcomed by Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble who also instructed the military commanders to pull back forces to their locations and barracks.
“I would like to welcome the press statements made by Galmudug and HirShabelle federal states, ” PM Roboe said in a statement.
“I call on the FMS states of Puntland and Jubaland and Benadir region to fully commit to a peaceful process in our efforts to hold free and inclusive election, ” he added.
United Nations, United Kingdom, United States and opposition leaders including former President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud commended the move by the regional states.

Somali Gov’t Warns Al-Shabaab & ISIS Will Capitalize On SNA Faction Clashes.
Somali National Security Minister Hassan Hundubey has warned opposition groups to be wary of “unknown elements” including Al-Shabaab and Daesh who might seek to use the current crisis to inflict harm to the public.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday said that the government may take action to confront people with the “behaviour of militias” who are taking advantage of the situation.
“The government has enough troops to take control of the city. It is Ramadan, but more actions need to be taken to prevent it.” mr. Hundebey said.
”The reason the prime minister called for dialogue is that the government does not want the fighting to affect the residence,” he added.
The remarks by the interior minister come hours after the international partners strongly condemned the outbreak of violence in the capital.
“We are alarmed especially by the emerging fragmentation of the Somali National Army along clan lines, which detracts from its primary task of combating Al Shabab and protecting the Somali population. Use of security forces for the pursuit of political objectives is unacceptable” the statement read in part.
As tensions increase in Mogadishu following Sunday clashes between government soldiers and those who were against President Farmaajo’s two years term extension.
