Reports indicate American jihadi killed in Somalia


< Previous Page


"Hammami brought a lot of unwelcome outside scrutiny on Shabab from the international jihadist community. His story will likely be a case study on what can go wrong when Westerners join jihadist movements," Berger said.

Hammami gave infrequent interviews to Somlia-focused journalists. Last week the Voice of America interviewed the wanted American, who said he was unlikely to ever return to the United States "That is not an option unless it’s in a body bag," Hammami said.

Frequent Twitter postings over the last year alluded to the fact that Hammami’s life was in danger. He had disavowed al-Shabab but in last week’s interviewed still classified himself as a terrorist.

"i’ll be a mujahid till the day i die whether it’s shabab who kills me or someone else," Hammami wrote in an April Twitter posting.
