Addis Ababa, 31 March 2014 (WIC) ¬- Somalia's Al Qaeda linked Al Shabaab group executed three men for spying for Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency in Barawe coastal town of southern Somalia on Friday afternoon, Garowe Online reports.

The alleged spies who have been identified as-Mohamed Deeq Hassan Ali, 28, Mohamud Farah Sabriye Shure, 47 and Abdinajib Shire Barre- were executed by firing squad at a public spot in the presence of self-appointed Al Shabaab judges and Barawe residents.

Ahead of the execution act, Al Shabaab judge said, the three men have been working with Federal Government of Somalia for several months and transferred Al Shabaab plans and activities to Mogadishu-based intelligence agency.

"Undoubtedly, we will firmly deal with the intruders who are charged with spying and we will hone to sever the cancer within the Muslims," Abu Abdalla, Al Shabaab's representative to Lower Shabelle region told onlookers at the scene of the execution.

Al Shabaab, one of the newest Al Qaeda franchises has suffered major setbacks over the last few weeks as Somali government forces along with African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) peacekeepers have been gaining grounds against Al Shabaab militants in central and southwestern Somalia.
