Mohamud Mohamud, 30, Cadil Huseen, 23, and Hussein Ali, 26, were yesterday sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in jail for killing Mohammed Abdi, 25, after a late-night car chase in a leafy suburb of the Capital.

At the High Court in Glasgow, Lord Turnbull said they were engaged in a “wholly corrupt lifestyle” and were prepared to “engage in violence of an extreme nature.”

Commenting on the killers’ Somali background, Lord Turnbull said: “It is very disappointing to realise that you  abused the opportunity of a new life free from the violence and oppression which your parents sought to escape.”

Mohamud and Ali showed little emotion as they were taken down. Husseen smiled and gave a thumbs-up.
