Al-Shabaab mocks US bounty of up to $7m for whereabouts of group’s leaders with offer of camels and chickens
A Somali Islamist militant group is offering rewards of chickens and camels for information on the whereabouts of the US president, Barack Obama, and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, mocking the millions of dollars the United States has offered for leaders of the al-Qaida affiliate.
Fuad Muhammad Khalaf of al-Shabaab in Somalia made the offer after Friday prayers, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant organisations.
“Whoever reveals the hideout of the idiot Obama will be rewarded with 10 camels, and whoever reveals the hideout of the old woman Hillary Clinton will be rewarded with 10 chickens and 10 roosters,” he said, according to SITE.
On Thursday, the US state department offered a reward of $5m (£3.2m) each for the whereabouts of Khalaf and three associates, as well as $7m for information about the al-Shabaab founder and commander Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed. A bounty of $3m was offered for the location of two other officials of the organisation.
