Read Time:24 Second

MOGADISHU, Somalia – A Somali soldier will face a firing squad for killing a civilian man in Baladweyne town, some 300km north of the capital, Mogadishu.

Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed was sentenced to death after he convicted of murdering a civilian, said in a statement released by a military court in Mogadishu.

The court also acquitted two other suspects shortly after the verdict was made.

Death sentences have been carried out increasingly often in the unstable Horn of the African nation in recent years.
