Mogadishu: Somalia`s most powerful militant group says it publicly executed three of its members because they had spied on the militants for the US and British intelligence agencies.
Al-Shabab said the three men were CIA and MI6 informants, and were the reason several drone attacks killed leaders from the group.
Mohamed Jama, a resident in the coastal town of Merca, told The Associated Press that dozens of masked fighters tied up the three men and killed them by firing squad today.
A US Embassy spokesman said he was not aware of the executions but that in general the US does not comment on intelligence matters.
