    Hussein was tied to a stake and had his head covered by a bag ahead of his execution.

    He shouted "There is no God but Allah" as Mohamed Moallim stepped up to take his revenge.

    "I am happy now because I killed the man who killed my father," he told the Reuters news agency.

    The execution marked the first time the local court in the Bermuda district of Mogadishu had handed down a death penalty, local media reported.

    Residents in the nearby area have reported a drop in robberies, murder and general lawlessness since the court began its work, Radio HornAfrik said.

    There has been no effective central government in Somalia for 15 years, leaving warlords to fight for control of local areas.

    Hey, if it works in Somalia, it works in the good ol USA.
