Plan to steal a phone in Somalia? Prepare to lose your limbs
It is a painful fact that should make headlines in the international news but it makes it here since it does have
something, slightly technically inclined. The fact the stealing cellophones can land you up losing your limbs in the presence
of a multitude is more alarming than the fact that this news hasn’t really made the headlines it should have. The punishment
was carried out by a terrorist group known as al-Shabab that amputated the right hands and left legs of the four accused
thieves. They were tried and found guilt by al-Shabab, a radical Islamist militia group. The execution took place in
Mogadishu, Somalia, in the presence of scores of onlookers.
