Shabaab Kills Humanitarian Worker, Holds Up Food from Red Cross

These people are pure evil:

Somali Islamist militants have killed the head of a food distribution charity in central Somalia, a pro-government militia said on Friday, the latest blow to the relief effort in the famine-hit country....

On Thursday, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) suspended food distribution to more than 1.1 million people in southern and central Somalia after the insurgents held up convoys carrying emergency food relief....

Residents said al Shabaab wanted only Islamic agencies to provide aid in the areas it controls.
