Somalia amputations carried out
Witnesses estimated the age of the four men at between 18 and 25
Hardline Islamists in Somalia have carried out double amputations on four men for stealing phones and guns.
They have each had a hand and a leg cut off after being convicted by a Sharia court in the capital earlier this week.
More then 300 people, mainly women and children, watched as masked men cut off their limbs with a machete.
The four men reportedly admitted to the robberies, but were not represented by a lawyer and were not allowed to appeal against their sentence.
A local resident in north-eastern Mogadishu, where the amputations took place, said the four men cried out during and after the amputations.
"'Help, help, help' one of them shouted," Mohamed Abdi Hassan told the BBC.
He said the whole process took an hour to complete.
