A military court in Somalia’s semi-autonomous state of Puntland has sentenced five Al-Shabab suspects to death for planning and attempting to carry suicide car bomb in Bosasso town before they were intercepted, Somali Update reports.

The five young men were arrested with a car allegedly laden with explosives on April 25th, 2017 by the Puntland security forces following a tip off from the public.
On Saturday, Puntland Military Court Judge Abdifatah Haji Aden announced the court ruling on the five men- Ibrahim Mohamed Ashuur, 20 ; Abaas Ibrahim Yare Aadan, 26; Dhaqane Adan Abdi Xadsan, 20; Aadan Nuur Aadan Cali, 27; Nuur Cabdi Aadan Isaaq 22.
“The court have seen the testimonials made one of the defendants, and reviewed all the alleged persons’ cases, has sentenced a death penalty on all five of them.” The Judge said as he was reading the court verdict against the five men who were sitting in front of him in a room inside the Prison in the coastal town of Bosasso.
The Judge noted that the court will soon carry the execution of the five men. It was unclear if the regional-based military court will allow appeals for the five young men despite the Saturday’s verdict of death sentence.
