A Somali military court sentenced soldiers Yahya Sheikh Abdillahi and Hussein Ali Ahmed to death Monday (September 2nd) for killing two Somali policemen in Mogadishu, UN-funded Radio Bar-Kulan reported.

Abdillahi was a member of the Somali National Army and Ali was part of the Madani militia that operates in Wadajir district of Benadir region.

"The decision to sentence the two soldiers was issued by the military court by using sharia and the country's laws," said Liban Abdi Yarow, chairman of Somalia's military court.

Four Somali National Army soldiers were executed in July after the military court found them guilty of murdering an official in Mogadishu.
