Somalia: prostheses and dental crowns "haram".


Since August 10, 2009, the Somali Islamist group "Al Shabaab (Youth)" began to tear strength teeth silver or gold of the people of Marka, a coastal town south of the country saying that these prostheses and crowns are "haram" that is to say contrary to Islam.
         Those who wear such gear elements are forcibly taken to a doctor who masked their hard these teeth with rudimentary tools.
         Bashir, a resident of Marka says he met in his office, several victims whose teeth had been "brought into conformity with Islam"
with pliers or by hand.
         "When you smile, your silver crown betrays you. I was in a bar with a friend when three armed Shabaab ordered me to follow them. I believe they want to make money by getting the precious metal,"
he said.
         Two French hostages in the hands of Al-Shabaab Islamist movement. Will they be released without their crowns, nor their dentures?
         Somalia is headed by Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, former leader of the Union of Islamic Courts, elected President of the Republic after the resignation of Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed January 31, 2008.
