US and British Militants ‘killed’ in Somalia

“Two top Islamist militants, from the US and UK, have been killed in Somalia after falling out with al-Shabab, witnesses have told the BBC. Omar Hammami, known as al-Amriki, and Osama al-Britani, a British citizen of Pakistani origin, are said to have died in an early-morning attack in a village south-west of the capital, Mogadishu. They had been hiding from al-Shabab since leaving the group this year. There have been several previous reports of al-Amriki’s death. In March, the US State Department offered a $5m (£3.1m) reward for any information leading to the capture or conviction of al-Amriki.”
