A high-ranking member of the Somali terrorist group Al-Shabaab was put to death for his crimes against humanity. Hassan Hanafi, a member of Al-Qaeda’s Somali affiliate, was shot to death by a firing squad after being found guilty of killing five American journalists.
Hanafi is guilty of murdering five journalists since he was extradited from Kenya to Somalia in 2014. Hanafi quickly rose through the ranks of Al-Shabaab, a group responsible for terrorist attacks on several African countries.
Hanafi shows no remorse for his acts of terror. The video below shows him lounging and relaxing in the courthouse only hours before his sentencing.
