FILE - In this Wednesday, May 11, 2011 file photo, American-born Islamist militant Omar Hammami addresses a press conference of the militant group al-Shabab at a farm in southern Mogadishu's Afgoye district in Somalia. Hammami, a jihadi from Alabama whose nom de guerre is Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki, or "the American," and ascended the ranks of Somalia's al-Qaida-linked militant group al-Shabab high enough to attract a $5 million U.S. government bounty, was killed Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013 in an ambush ordered by the militant group's leader, militants said.
