(AHN)– Somalian militant group al-Shabaab, which has links to Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terror movement, has imposed strict new orders on refugee women currently living in the Afgoye corridor.
A female refugee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told a local radio station that women were ordered to wear full-length body coverings even when they are in the privacy of their own homes, adding that any one seen violating the edict would be punished.
Early Sunday morning, pick-up trucks mounted with loudspeakers could be seen in the villages KM 13, Siinka Dheer, Elasha, Lafole and Arbska where thousands of displaced Somali civilians have taken refuge. Residents expressed a deep concern about the new rule that also forces women to stay home unless escorted by an adult male (Muhrem).
Al-Shabaab intends to impose a strict version of Sharia Islamic law throughout war-devastated Somalia. The group routinely carries out abductions and violently punishes people for all types of crimes.
