Three capital sentences in Somalia

The military court in Somalia has sentenced three soldiers to death in connection with armed robberies of two civilian buses. The soldiers have a month in which to appeal to the Military Supreme Court. A news account reported that "[l]ast[m]onth, [the] Somali Military Court warned that any armed soldier found on robbery or rape will be executed in a bid to restore the peace and stability of many regions in the country’s south and central regions."
