Somali Major To Die For Killing Commander

Somali’s National Army Court has upheld the death sentence for Major Abdinassir Hosh, who stands accused of killing the deputy commander of the Somali Navy, Said Adan Yussuf, the Somali news site Goobjoog reports.

Yusuf was shot and killed in the Somali capital of Mogadishu in January and a month later, Mr Hosh was sentenced to death by firing squad for the crime, Goobjoog adds.

Mr Hosh subsequently appealed the decision but was overruled yesterday.
