Reuters..January 16, 2009 11:01 AM.....MOGADISHU. Hardline Somali Islamist insurgents said on Friday they executed a politician accused of being a "spy" for Ethiopian troops and militia opposed to them.

Al Shabaab, which is on a U.S. list of terrorism groups, took Kismayu in August 2008 during its now two-year war against the Somali government and its Ethiopian military backers. It controls large swathes of south-central Somalia.
A local spokesman for al Shabaab, Sheikh Hassan Yacqub, said Ahmed had been warned several times to break ties with the Ethiopians and local militias who previously controlled Kismayu.

"He was in our jail for eight days and then we took him before the court, and finally we executed him according to Islamic sharia law," he told Reuters. "Anybody who spies for the non-believers will definitely face the death sentence."

Local residents said he had been buried in a place called the "non-believers' cemetery". Also on Friday, foreign and Somali media watchdogs said kidnappers had released a local journalist, Abdifatah Mohamed Elmi, who was kidnapped in August last year in Mogadishu.

Two foreign journalists taken with him, a Canadian and an Australian, are still missing. "The Somali journalist's release is obviously good news, but we will feel no relief until the kidnappers have also released the two foreign journalists," Reporters Without Borders said.

"Our concern about their fate is as strong as ever given the growing instability in Mogadishu. The African Union (AU) rebuked media on Friday for "negative" coverage of Somalia, saying the Ethiopian withdrawal from the city was a major step towards peace.

"It is sad to note that positive developments in Somalia are always overlooked while emphasis is put on negative events," it said in a statement by its peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu.

The AU, which has 3,500 soldiers in Somalia, took particular issue with some local media reports citing witnesses that al Shabaab group had taken over bases in Mogadishu. Addis Ababa pulled its troops from the city this week, two years after going in to oust a sharia courts movement that it saw as a threat to regional stability and linked to al Qaeda.
