Al-Qaeda intent on 'cleansing' Christians by beheading them in Somalia
July 24, 6:55 PM5
The killings come from extremists al Shabaab insurgents wanting to topple Somalia's West-leaning transitional government and enforce sharia (Islamic) law.
Somalia's Christians comprise less than 1 percent of the nation's 9.8 million people.
Compass says al Shabaab has ties to al-Qaida which is monitoring converts from Islam and is intent on "cleansing" Christians "especially where Christian workers had provided medical aid" through a former Christian-operated hospital.
