Somalia rebels threaten US attack

“The leader of Somalia’s main armed group al-Shabab has threatened to attack the United States if Barack Obama, the US president, does not embrace Islam.

The group has not launched an attack outside Africa but western intelligence agencies have long been concerned about the group targetting young Somali-Americans for recruitment.

‘We tell the American President Barack Obama to embrace Islam before we come to his country,’ Fuad Mohamed ‘Shongole’ Qalaf, one of the rebel leaders, said in a radio broadcast on Monday.”
