British Lord Offers Bounty on Obama

A member of Britain’s House of Lords has been suspended following allegations that he offered a 10 million pound bounty for the capture of President Obama and former President George W. Bush. Lord Ahmed, the first Muslim peer admitted to the U.K.’s upper house of Parliament, reportedly made the statement at a conference in Pakistan in response to news that the U.S. offered a $10 million reward for the capture of Pakistani militant leader Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, founder of the group suspected of orchestrating 2008’s Mumbai attacks which left 166 people dead.
