Pray or die, Somali sheikh tells Muslims - Yahoo! News: "MOGADISHU (Reuters) - A leading Mogadishu sheikh said on Friday Muslims who do not pray five times a day should be put to death -- the latest sign of a fast-emerging hardline face to Somalia's newly-powerful Islamists.

The sheikh's statement -- which he confirmed to Reuters after it was broadcast on local media -- caused consternation among residents and will fuel foreign fears the Islamists are planning a hardline Taliban-style rule.

'He who does not perform prayer will be considered as infidel and our sharia law orders that person to be killed,' said Sheikh Abdalla Ali, who runs a sharia court in the Somali capital which the Islamists took last month."
