Somali militants offer 10 camels for information on Barack Obama

Al-Shabaab, the Somalian militant group accused of many kidnappings as well as the destabilization of the government within the horn of Africa, has offered a reward for information on Barack Obama’s whereabouts — 10 camels. The Guardian reports that this was a mocking response to the U.S. bounty of up to $7m for the whereabouts of the al-Shabaab founder and leader Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamud Godane.

A Somali Islamist militant group is offering rewards of chickens and camels for information on the whereabouts of the US president, Barack Obama, and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, mocking the millions of dollars the United States has offered for leaders of the al-Qaida affiliate.

Fuad Muhammad Khalaf of al-Shabaab in Somalia made the offer after Friday prayers, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant organisations.

“Whoever reveals the hideout of the idiot Obama will be rewarded with 10 camels, and whoever reveals the hideout of the old woman Hillary Clinton will be rewarded with 10 chickens and 10 roosters,” he said, according to SITE.
