Report: Muslim convert to Christianity beheaded in Somalia

Catholic World News - November 20, 2012

Farhan Haji Mose, a 25-year-old Somali convert from Islam to Christianity, was beheaded on November 16 by Al-Shabaab rebels, according to Morning Star News, a recently-founded news service that reports on the persecution of Christians.

“His body was split into two, then carried away, only to be dumped near the beach of Barawa city,” a local Christian said.

    Another martyr of Christ, whatever the flavor of his Christianity. Requiescat in pace.
