Alabama man on FBI's "most wanted terrorist" list
The FBI says Omar Shafik Hammami has been a senior leader in the terror group al-Shabab. Officials believe Hammami moved to Somalia in 2006 and joined the group, later designated by the State Department as a terrorist organization.
From Somalia, Hammami has taken on the role of jihadi lecturer and Islamic scholar. After U.S. Navy SEALs killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011, Hammami threatened at a news conference near Mogadishu to avenge the killing.
Hammami faces charges in the U.S. of providing material support to terrorists.
The FBI created its "Most Wanted Terrorist" list a month after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
