A US Islamic extremist fighting in Somalia was killed Thursday in a shootout with Al-Qaeda linked Shebab militants, former comrades he had fallen out with, witnesses said.

Alabama-born Omar Hamami -- better known as Al-Amriki or "the American" -- was one of the most prominent foreigners fighting in Somalia, and the US State Department had offered a $5 million bounty for his capture.

"There was a gun battle between Amriki and his men and other fighters, the reports are that Amriki is among those killed," said Moalim Ali, a resident in Bardhere district.

I am saddened that some of the combatants survived.

If he is muslim, then he obeys islamic law, not American law. Either he is an American or he’s not. As far as I’m concerned, he’s not.

Good riddance to the muslim piece of trash.

No, sad part is his is mother is from Alabama and is a Southern Baptist. From everything I’ve read over the years about him, he was a perfectly normal teen until about the time he was a senior in HS, then got progressively worse when he attended the University of S. Alabama and started attending some Muzzie school on the side.

“He abandoned his wife and infant daughter to join Al-Shabaab in Somalia in late 2006. They divorced, and by 2009 he had married a Somali woman and had another daughter.”

Gee, what a guy!

"...he US State Department had offered a $5 million bounty for his capture.

Why not yank his United States Citizenship...no passport=no country. If the State Department can afford $5million, why couldn't they afford to protect Chris Stevens etc. Hillary of course did have to travel a lot with her entourage, hotels, parties etc....what good would Hammami be tho them anyway...is State in the business of interrogation?
