Mogadishu, 10 Dec. 2014 (Qalin) – Seven women were killed in Tiyeglow district of Somalia on Wednesday in separate incidents, where Alshabab beheaded two women first and government soldiers killed five other women in revenge, a witness confirmed for Qalin.

The body of two women, who were apparently beheaded by Alshabab were found outskirts of the Tiyeglow district early Wednesday morning after Alshabab kidnapped the two women from their houses overnight Tuesday. 

Saliid Yare, a witness who saw the bodies of all the seven women told Qalin, "Alshabab kidnapped two women from the town last night and they beheaded them in the outskirts of the town, they were seen this morning nomads "

"In the morning the government forces launched security sweep out to find out the potential assistants of Alshabab. The police gathered some women whose husbands were suspected as Alshabab members, but one of the soldiers whose wife was among the two beheaded in the night opened fire on the women and killed five of them"

The soldier who committed the murder was later arrested to a military detention in the town by the forces and his act was widely condemned by both the local authority and the regional authority. Somalia federal government didn't comment on the revenge killing of the innocent women just targeted because of their links with the husbands that joined Alshabab, while the UN secretary General Ban Ki Moon called all the states to respect the human rights all days in the year.

Ban Ki Moon said in his statement, "I call on States to honour their obligation to protect human rights every day of the year. I call on people to hold their governments to account. And I call for special protections for the human rights defenders who courageously serve our collective cause.

Elders are working on the restore of the normal situation, but the fear of revenge killing may result clan conflict in the town.
