Former Somalian journalist Sentenced to Death - For Helping terrorist group al-Shabab kill fellow Reporters.

A former Somalian journalist who helped terrorist group al-Shabab kill fellow reporters has been sentenced to death. 

Hassan Hanafi - who has a scar similar to fictional character Frankenstein - helped the Islamist militant group, linked to al-Qaeda, by identifying possible targets among journalists between 2007 and 2011.
He had worked as a field reporter and presenter at a radio station before joining the radical group.
He had been promoted to commander in 2009. The following year, he was seriously injured in fighting.

While he was working for al-Shabab, he would call up journalists and threaten them with death if they refused to join the militant organisation.
