American Jihadi Reportedly Killed

A U.S. terrorism expert has confirmed that Omar Hammami, a jihadi originally from Alabama, was likely killed in an ambush arranged by the al-Shabab rebel group’s top leader. Known as Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki or “the American,” the 29-year-old Hammami joined al-Shabab in about 2006 and went on to become one of Somalia’s top al-Qaida-linked rebels before a falling out with the jihadist community.
