Somalia Militants Kill Christian Woman For Refusing To Wear Veil

Islamic militants have shot and killed a Somali Christian woman because she declined to wear a veil as prescribed by Muslim custom.

Members of the Suna Waljameca group killed Amina Muse Ali, 45, on October 19 in her home in Galkayo, in Somalia's autonomous Puntland region, said Compass Direct News, a well-informed Christian news agency.

Ali had told Christian leaders that she had received several threats from members of Suna Waljameca for not wearing a veil, symbolic of adherence to Islam, Christians said. She had said members of the group had long monitored her movements because they suspected she was a Christian.
