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 microblogging service Twitter has suspended the account of the al Qaeda-linked Somali militia known as al Shabab.
"I think it's very likely true based on the sources I am seeing," said J.M. Berger, who runs the website Intelwire.com, according to AP.
Analyst J.M. Berger, who has followed Hammami's activities for many years, said the American had been "a thorn in the side of al-Shabab" for more than two years.
