The charismatic Muslim leader on Kenya's coast was certain he would be killed. Abubakar Shariff Ahmed — known as Makaburi — told an Associated Press reporter in October that "I'm living on borrowed time." He said this after two other Muslim leaders of a mosque that Makaburi was associated with had been killed by unidentified gunmen. On Tuesday night, Makaburi's premonition came true. He died the same way as the other two: shot dead by unidentified gunmen on the streets of Mombasa. Another man with Makaburi was also killed. Human rights activists' suspect the government — rattled by the presence of Islamic extremists in Kenya and by the attack last year by al-Shabab on a Nairobi mall — is behind the killings of the Muslim leaders. less
