Seven Somali women killed in 'barbaric' attacks

You don't hear the left talking about the real war on women.
Mogadishu (AFP) - At least seven women have been killed in "barbaric" attacks in Somalia after Shebab insurgents beheaded a soldier's wife, prompting revenge executions of women close to the Islamists, elders said Thursday.

The Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shebab earlier this week snatched two women -- a soldier's wife and a chef for the government troops -- before chopping the heads off both, elders in the southwestern Tiyeglow district told AFP.

"It was horrible, Al-Shebab killed two innocent women connected with the government troops," said Aliyow Isack, an elder.

In revenge, the widowed soldier and his colleagues rounded up women connected to Shebab fighters.

"For the death of the two women, they arrested 10 women whom they said were wives of Al-Shebab militants, killing five before the elders rescued and freed the rest," Isack added.
