World Cup Watch: Somalia

Somali Islamists Hizbul-Islam have decided to add watching the World Cup to their now very-very long list of things that are Haraam.

Several houses where games have been shown have been attacked, and the BBC reports that two people were killed on Saturday night, which certainly puts Robert Green’s problems in perspective.

Hizbul Islam spokesman Sheikh Mohamed Abdi Aros said:

“We are warning all the youth of Somalia not to dare watch these World Cup matches. It is a waste of money and time and they will not benefit anything or get any experience by watching mad men jumping up and down.”

The sheikh’s views on the Vuvuzela are unknown.
