al-Shabaab Arrests Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki?

Horn of Africa News:

The islamist militants of Al-shabab linked with Al-Qaeda have arrested on Monday a US-born jihadist in southern Somalia town, reports said.

Sources say some Al-shabab fighters have stormed the house of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki in the town of Marko on Sunday afternoon and taken away to Qorioley district, just 120 Km away south of Mogadishu.


Omar Hamami - better known as Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki - gave the warning in an undated video posted on several Somali websites and YouTube on Saturday, saying that his life is in danger from his fellow militants.

Judging from the comments on this video he is not long for this world.

Over the weekend al-Shabaab was quoted as saying, "Omar Hammami will face sharia justice over his unIslamic behavior."

Uh yeah.
