Barbaric and inhumane
At the “chop chop shop”
Somali militants chop man’s arm off
Somalia Islamic militants Al-Shabaab Thursday amputated the hand of a man accused of theft at Alamada, 18km south of Mogadishu.
The amputation of the young man, identified only as Mohamed, was witnessed by a large crowd of onlookers.
An Al-Shabaab official at the scene said Mohamed was found guilty of stealing clothes.
“A sharp sword was used to slash the right hand away,” confirmed witnesses who did not want their names mentioned for security reasons.
