Ali Dhere, a spokesman of Al-Shabaab, called on Muslims to gloat about the "painful torment" inflicted on any non-Muslims who contract Coronavirus and have no sympathy for those who are ill.
 
He went on to mock Government lockdown measures intended to contain the epidemic, describing the closure of mosques and Islamic seminaries as "sinister". The militant closed by inciting Muslims to "join the war against unbelievers" and work towards the end of democracy and implementation of Sharia (Islamic Law) in Somalia.
