MOGADISHU: A United States Islamist fighting in Somalia was killed on Thursday (Friday in Manila) in a shootout with al-Qaeda linked Shebab militants, former comrades he had fallen out with, witnesses said. Alabama-born Omar Hammami—better known as Al-Amriki or “the American”—was one of the most prominent foreigners fighting in Somalia, and the US State Department had offered a $5-million (3.8-million-euro) bounty for his capture.
