Somali Christian Killed for Refusing to Wear Veil

Ad Feedback

Islamic militants in Somalia recently killed a Christian woman for refusing to wear a veil in public.
Compass Direct News reported that three masked men shot 45-year-old Amina Muse Ali in her home on Oct. 19.
Two weeks prior to her death, Ali reportedly informed local Christian leaders that she had received several threats from members of the Islamic group Suna Waljameca.

'My life is in danger," an anonymous source in Somalia quoted her as saying. "I am warned of dire consequences if I continue to live without putting on the veil. I need prayers from the fellowship.'"

The source told Compass Direct they were "shocked beyond words" by the news of Ali's murder.

"I wished I could have recalled her to my location," the source said. "We have lost a long-serving Christian."

Suna Waljameca is considered to be moderate compared with Al Shabaab. Nevertheless, both groups pose a deadly threat to Christians in the region.
