A photo of Omar Hammami, the American who has served as a commander, propagandist, and recruiter for Shabaab, has been released on the Internet. The photo shows Hammami with a copy of his autobiography, which was released last week.
Shabaab and al Qaeda formally said the two groups have merged. Ayman al Zawahiri announced "the joining of the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement in Somalia to Qaedat al-Jihad, to support the jihadi unity against the Zio-Crusader campaign and their assistants amongst the treacherous agent rulers."
Shabaab has an estimated 750 to 1,000 "foreign fighters" in its ranks, according to an estimate by a Kenyan military official. The official also said al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is actively supporting Shabaab.
Omar Hammami, the American who is also known as Abu Mansoor al Amriki, spoke at a public rally in Afgoye for Osama bin Laden. Hammami vowed to avenge bin Laden and said the establishment of a global caliphate would come soon.
Omar Hammami, the American Shabaab military commander, released a nasheed glorifying death, and said he hoped to die as other senior al Qaeda leaders have died. Hammami's tape refutes reports of his death from Somalia's defense minister.
