HUDUR, SUDAN (Worthy News)– The body of a kidnapped Christian convert from Islam was found decapitated near Hudur City on Sept. 2.
Sources said Juma Nuradin Kamil was forced into a car by three suspected members of al Shabaab; after a search by the community, his headless body was found on a street.
Muslim members of al Shabaab — a militant group with ties to al Qaeda — have vowed to rid Somalia of all Christians.
A Christian who saw Kamil’s body said it bore the marks of an al Shabaab killing.
“His head was put on his chest,” he said.
“It is usual for the al Shabaab to decapitate those they suspect to have embraced the Christian faith, or sympathizers of Western ideals,” said a leader in Somalia’s underground church. “Our brother accepted the Christian faith three years ago and was determined in his faith in God. We greatly miss him.”
