Al-Shabab Twitter Account Suspended

The Twitter account of Somali militant group al-Shabab has been suspended, after it was used to threaten to kill Kenyan hostages.

Al-Shabab launched its Twitter account in December 2011, after Kenyan troops went into Somalia to combat it.

Earlier this month, it used Twitter to announce it would kill a French hostage and then said it had done so.
