Somalia: Four jihadists killed

September 13, 2013

TWO Western jihadist fighters and two locals have been killed by the Islamist al-Shabaab militia in Somalia, witnesses say.

The four were part of a group that splintered from al-Shabaab this year, citing the increasingly radical nature of the organisation, which has become affiliated with al-Qaeda.

The two foreigners are believed to be Omar Hammami, known as al-Amriki because of his ties to the United States, and Osama al-Britani, a British citizen of Pakistani origin. Hammami grew up in Alabama.

They were killed after a fierce gun battle outside the town of Bardhere in the Gedo region.
