Somali Militant Group Executes Girls Accused of Spying
Somalia's al-Qaida linked al-Shabab militants have executed two girls accused of spying for the Somali government.
A firing squad killed the two teenagers in the town of Beledweyne on Wednesday while several hundred people watched.
An al-Shabab judge says the two were arrested last week and charged with spying for Somali forces.
The Islamic militant group has been trying to turn Somalia into a strict Islamic state. The group has imposed a harshly conservative form of sharia, or Islamic law, in the areas it rules.
