Somali AI-Shabab militants
have posted this picture of an unnamed man
they say they have executed in Nairobi.
They claim he was a spy
working for British and Kenyan intelligence services,
attempting to disrupt the recruiting and trafficking
of young Western Muslims.
Al-Shabab extremism within Kenya
escalated with the Westgate shopping mall attack
in Nairobi two years ago,
in which 67 people died and 175 were injured.
In April, the group massacred 147 students and staff
at Garissa University College.
Al-Shabab want to impose their strict version
of Sharia law across the Horn of Africa.
They bitterly resent the role of Britain and the Kenyan military
in propping up the UN-backed Somali government.

Version three on Operation Egret is ready.
Ahmed's house data is on slide three.
Only two Hellfires? Where are my GBU-12s?
Well, ma'am, given the mission brief, we thought we should
decrease the gross weight and increase the loiter time.
So I've only got the Hellfires?
Sadd, next time you change the load out,
you check with me first, please?
- Yes, ma'am. - Thank you.
How was your flight?
General, good morning.
You got my email?

That should be fine.
Good luck today, Katherine.

Yeah. You're fine. We haven't started yet.
All right, I'm going to

Loud and clear, Colonel, thank you.
