The experts in Puntland had pledged to deal with any individuals from al-Shabab or individuals found helping the gathering in its assaults.
The BBC’s Africa editorial manager Will Ross says the Islamist bunch actually represents an enormous danger to Somalia’s steadiness.
Al-Shabab controls a large part of the nation’s southern and focal parts, and exploration distributed in October by the Hiraal Institute said the assailants raised more money than the Somali government.
As the executions were being completed on Sunday, al-Shabab contenders raged the town of Wisil in the Mudug district.
There are a few reports that in any event 20 fighters were killed when a military base was assaulted.
