In last night’s post about the administration of Koranic justice in Somalia, I reported on the execution of Omar Hussein, who was stabbed to death under a Shari’ah court by the teenage son of a man murdered by the executed man.
For the last twelve hours Gates of Vienna has been inundated by visitors conducting internet searches for video of the execution of Omar Hussein. This began before we posted the story — a coincidence of keywords was bringing the searchers to us, and that helped tip me to the story’s existence.
I assume that word has gone out in the Islamic underground that a video of the grisly event is available. Imagine how much search traffic there is in the Arabic-language parts of the web for the same purpose.
So, to all of our visitors searching for “video mohamed moallim stab omar hussein”: you won’t find what you’re looking for here. But I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.
