FBI Re-Ups 5 Million Dollar Reward for Jehad Serwan Mostafa, US Citizen on Most Wanted Terrorist List for Terror Ties in Somalia



(Newser)

Jehad Serwan Mostafa is worth quite a bit to the FBI—up to $5 million, in fact. That’s how much the agency is offering for information leading to the arrest of the 37-year-old US citizen, who appears on its “Most Wanted Terrorist List,” CNN reports. A new indictment unsealed Monday says the ex-San Diego resident offered “material support” to al-Shabab, an extremist Islamic group, and played a role in “planned operations” against African Union troops and the government of Somalia, per a Justice Department release. ABC News reports his leadership in the group has allegedly led to the injuries or deaths of hundreds of innocent people in Africa. “We believe this defendant is the highest-ranking US citizen fighting overseas with a terrorist organization,” US Attorney Robert Brewer says. “Al-Shabab’s reign of terror threatens US national security, our international allies, and innocent civilians.”


Mostafa, who’s been tied to IED attacks in Somalia, is believed to be there at the moment. He was indicted in 2009 on a number of terrorism-related charges, but the new ones expand on those, accusing him of from March 2008 to February 2017 conspiring to provide material support, including himself as personnel, to terrorists; conspiring to provide material support to al-Shabab, a designated foreign terrorist group; and providing material support to al-Shabab. Al-Shabab is a violent militant group seeking to wield control in Somalia so it can set up society based on Sharia. (Read more Most Wanted stories.)
