The FBI says Omar Shafik Hammami has been a senior leader in the terror group al-Shabab. Officials believe Hammami moved to Somalia in 2006 and joined the group, later designated by the State Department as a terrorist organization.
From Somalia, Hammami has taken on the role of jihadi lecturer and Islamic scholar. After U.S. Navy SEALs killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011, Hammami threatened at a news conference near Mogadishu to avenge the killing.
Hammami faces charges in the U.S. of providing material support to terrorists.
If you have any information concerning Hammami, please contact the FBI's Tip Line at 1-800-CALL-FBI, or call the FBI Mobile Division, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or submit a tip electronically.
