The Somali government is offering a $250,000 bounty for al-Shabab leader Ahmad Umar and up to $150,000 for ten other senior members of the militant group affiliated with al-Qaeda.

The Somali government is offering a $250,000 bounty for al-Shabab leader Ahmad Umar and up to $150,000 for ten other senior members of the militant group affiliated with al-Qaeda. Mahad Karate, who heads al-Shabab's force responsible for intelligence and assassinations, is also on the list.

The clan-based Islamists took over most of southern Somalia in 2006 using it as a launching pad for attacks across the country and in neighboring nations. They seek to establish an Islamic State in Somalia based on the principles of Salafism under strict Sharia law, and to spread Islam throughout the Horn of Africa and beyond.
