Islamist militant, Alshabaab killed a Somali woman for allegedly not wearing the Islamic veil, relatives say.

Two armed men came to Ruqiyyah Farah’s hut in the southern Somalia town of Hosingow and warned her to wear the Islamic veil.
” two armed men came to her at around ( 04:30 GMT ) and told her to wear the veil, after they came back the second time and found she didn’t wear the veil, they shot her two times and she died instantly on the spot,” relative Hassan said.

Al-shabaab denied carrying out the killing.

Al-Shabab, which controls much of southern and central Somalia, imposes strict rules of Sharia
including dress codes for men and women.
