A military court in Somali capital Mogadishu has sentenced two men accused for being members of Al-Shabaab to 10 year in jail on Thursday, April 13.

According to Col Hassan Ali Nur Shuure, the chairman of the military tribunal, the 2 men were sentenced to jail terms after they were convicted of collaborating with Al shabaab.

The defendants are Mohamed Ali Kediye, and Hussein Hashi Abdullahi.
