Mogadishu - According to Associated Press a young man who is allegedly a U.S. citizen blew himself in a suicide action in AMISOM base in Mogadishu killing at least 9 people.
A Militant run radio broadcast in Somalia on Sunday aired that young man, allegedly a U.S. citizen blew himself in a suicide action in AMISOM base in Mogadishu killing at least 9 people.
The suicide bomber identified as Abdisalan Hussein Ali was only a few months old when his family fled the strife in Somalia in a makeshift boat, landing first at a Kenyan refugee camp. His family, with 12 children, arrived in Seattle in 2000 and then moved to Minneapolis.
The Audio recording of the suicide bomber that was published by shabab urged the Muslims around the world to join the Jihad.
United Stated had admitted earlier there are more than 20 young Somali-American have joined Al-shabaab to fight in Somalia. The name the insurgents gave him is: Abdisalan. He is believed to be the third Somali American suicide bomber in Somalia
In the Audio recording, a voice that sounded like an American accent which the shabab said was the bomber said,
"My brothers and sisters do jihad in America, do jihad in Canada, do jihad in England, anywhere in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, in China, in Australia," the voice said. "Anywhere you find (unbelievers), fight them and be firm against them.
"Today jihad is what most important thing for the Muslim ummah is," he said, using a word for the Islamic community. "It is not important that you, you know, you you become a doctor or you become, you know, uh, some sort of engineer."
"We have to believe in Allah and die as Muslims ... Brainstorm," the youth said. "Don't, don't just sit around and, you know, be, be be a couch potato and you know, you know, just like, you know, just chill all day, you know. It doesn't, it doesn't, it will not benefit you, it will not benefit yourself, or the Muslims."
Mr. Ali was known by the F.B.I. to be one of an estimated 30 Americans who have joined the Shabab, at least 20 of whom came from the Somali community in Minneapolis, according to the New York Times.
Meanwhile, two Kenyan jet fighters bombarded Jilib, which is located in the Southern regions of Somalia. The casualty is not clear yet, but they have caused a lot of damages.
