US offers $10M for info leading to American duoMarch 20, 2013 @ 1:11 pm
WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States is offering $10 million for information leading to the arrest of two Americans in Somalia who are on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists List.
The State Department says the rewards are $5 million each for al-Shabab members Omar Shafik Hammami and Jehad Mostafa.
It says the 28-year-old Hammami is a resident of Daphne, Ala., who moved to Somalia in 2006. He has served as a propagandist for the al-Qaida-affiliated organization, attracting English-speaking youth with rap songs and video statements, and as a military commander.
The department says Mostafa lived in San Diego before moving to Somalia in 2005. He commands foreign fighters for al-Shabab, which has fought for years for control over Somalia.
Both men have been indicted in the U.S. on terror charges.
