Canadian Airborne Regiment Tortured and Killed Somali Teenager

While on a “humanitarian” mission in Somalia in 1993, members of the Canadian Airborne Regiment (CAR) brutally beat and sexually abused Shidane Arone, a Somali teenager, until he died.

CAR also shot two unarmed Somalis in the back, killing them. The CAR also fired on a group of Somalis protesting their presence, killing one and injuring two.

Officers later tried to cover up the incident, altering documents relevant to the subsequent inquiry. The CAR was known as a hotbed of explicit white supremacist organizing in their home base of Petawawa.
