2 Somalis killed for watching World Cup
MOGADISHU, Somalia - Radical Islamic militia fighters in Somalia shot and killed two people who were watching a banned World Cup soccer broadcast, a radio station reported Wednesday.
The hard-line Muslim fighters, who have banned watching television, opened fire after a crowd of teenagers defied their orders to leave a hall where a businessman was showing Tuesday's Germany-Italy match on satellite television, according to Shabelle Radio, an independent local station. It said the businessman and a teenage girl were killed.
How can you question our need to stand up to these radicals, these bullies, in whatever hellhole they pop up in? This is what they want here too. They want you to live under the same tyranny they are trying to impose in Somalia. Although I imagine they'd have had a hellava time in the North End yesterday when Italy beat Germany.
