  Who are al-Shabab?

Rogo was murdered earlier this week and his followers claim he was executed by authorities over unproven allegations of "terrorism".

He had been blacklisted by US and UN for his alleged support for Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab.

Kenyan Muslims believe they are the victims of religious persecution and are convinced there is a systematic campaign of extrajudicial killings and disappearances of conservative thinkers in their community.
