Somali father chooses firing squad to execute the Muslim paedophiles who raped and killed his 12-year-old daughter.
Neonnettle Two men who were found guilty of gang-raping and murdering a 12-year-old girl have been publicly executed in Somalia – by a firing squad chosen by the victim’s father.
After watching the executioners put down his daughter’s killers, dad Ilyaas Aden, inspected the gang-rapists’ bodies to make sure they were dead.
The young victim, Aisha Ilyaas Aden, was abducted from a market, raped, and then strangled to death by the gang in February last year. Her body was later found near her home in Galkayo, Puntland region.
Abdifatah Abdirahman Warsame and Abdishakur Mohamed Dige were found guilty of the shocking attack.Both men were shot in Bossasso town square, on Somalia’s north coast.
Ilyaas Aden attended the execution this week with officials and members of the public, reports Mustaqbal radio. Aden is also alleged to have delayed the execution of Warsame’s brother, Abdisalam Abdirahman, who had also been found guilty of the crimes, by at least ten days so that his case can be re-evaluated.
“Sexual violence is sadly not a shocking occurrence in Puntland,” Hawa Aden Mohamed, founder of the Galkayo Education Centre for Peace and Development, which promotes women’s rights. “The seemingly never-ending violence against women and girls, where men can evade any responsibility for what they do, has to end.
Campaigners say police are either unaware of violence of women or do not see it as a serious crime, which deters women from reporting abuse.
