MOGADISHU, Somalia — Al Qaeda rebels in Somalia yesterday mocked the $33 million in US bounties for tips on the whereabouts of their leaders, saying they would give 10 camels to anyone who helped them locate President Obama.
The group al-Shabaab is also offering 10 roosters and 10 hens for information on the whereabouts of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“There is nothing new in the fact that infidels pay to have Muslim leaders killed. They already did that by offering camels for the head of Prophet Mohammed,” said a senior Shabaab leader, Fuad Mohamed Khalaf.
Khalaf was referring to an offer of 100 camels made for Mohammed when he was fleeing Mecca for Medina, according to the Koran.
