Alabama man added to FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists List

MOBILE, AL (WSFA) -

A Daphne, AL man has been added to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists' List for allegedly providing material support to terrorists.

The FBI Mobile Division added Omar Shafik Hammami, also known as "Abu Mansour al-Amriki," to the list today. Hammami is alleged to have provided material support to a designated foreign terrorist operation, al-Shabaab.

The FBI detailed Hammami's involvement with al-Shabaab in a release.

"Hammami allegedly traveled to Somalia during 2006 and eventually joined the al-Shabaab's military wing.  In 2007, after Ethiopian forces invaded Somalia, Hammami joined the front lines as a fighter and eventually became a leader with al-Shabaab.  On November 27, 2007, an indictment was returned in the United States Southern District of Alabama, charging Hammami with 18 U.S.C. 2339A, providing material support to terrorists and on September 24, 2009, a superseding indictment charged Hammami with 18 U.S.C. 2339 B, providing material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.  The Southern District of Alabama has issued an active warrant against Hammami for his arrest."

Authorities say Hammami should be considered armed and dangerous - private citizens are asked to take no independent action against Hammami.

If you have any information concerning Hammami, please contact the FBI's Tip Line at 1-800-CALL-FBI, or call the FBI Mobile Division, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or submit a tip electronically.
