MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) Al-Qaida-linked militants in war-torn southern Somalia have banned unrelated men and women from shaking hands, speaking or walking together in public, residents said Saturday. People who break the rules could be imprisoned, whipped or even executed.

The insurgents already have banned women from working in public, leaving many mothers with a terrible choice: risk execution by going to sell some tea or vegetables in the marketplace, or stay safely at home and watch the children slowly starve.

Its an awful rule. I feel like Im under arrest. Ive started to ignore the greetings of the women I know to avoid punishment, Hussein Ali said by phone form the southern Somali town of Jowhar. The edict is also being enforced in the town of Elasha.

Somali land, which broke off from Somalia, is the southern part. It is run by christians. Their nation is recovering from the problems it had when it was part of Somalia. There was an article about it in National Geographic a few months back.
