American jihadi Omar Hammami was murdered "in cold blood," a Somalia-based Islamic center said, backing up reports that the militant from Alabama was killed Thursday by his rivals within the Somali Islamic extremist group al-Shabab.
Members of Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group al-Shabab have killed one of their own — the rapping jihadist known as "The American," according to several reports citing militant spokesmen.
Omar Hammami — a rapping, tweeting jihadi from Daphne, Ala., who had a falling-out with Somalia's al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab — was killed Thursday in an ambush ordered by the militant group's leader, the Associated Press reported.
The terrorism case against an Alabama man accused of planning to wage violent jihad in Africa may hinge on just how well he knew a man on the FBI's most-wanted terrorist list.
In an interview last week with Voice of America, Hammami said he had left al-Shabab and acknowledged he was being hunted down by his former allies within the rebel group.
"I haven't been part of al-Shabab for quite a while now," he said.
