Somali lawmakers threatened

Shebab threaten to kill them ‘one-by-one’

Somalia's Al-Qaeda linked Shebab threatened Monday to kill all the country's new lawmakers, saying that a Member of Parliament killed at the weekend in Mogadishu was just the first to be targeted.

"The successful elimination of Mustafa Haji Mohamed was the action of the mujahedeen who are committed to killing all MPs," a Shebab official who asked not to be named told AFP, saying the group would "kill one-by-one" all other lawmakers.

"The remaining 274 MPs are on the waiting list to die if they don't abandon the criminal organisation that was set up contrary to Islamic law," the official said, referring to the new parliament selected in August. AFP
