Somali Islamist insurgents threaten US attack

MOGADISHU — A leader of Somalia's Islamist insurgency threatened to attack America during a broadcast speech.
"We tell the American President Barack Obama to embrace Islam before we come to his country," Fuad Mohamed "Shongole" Qalaf said Monday.
Al-Shabab has not yet launched an attack outside Africa but Western intelligence has long been worried because the group targeted young Somali-Americans for recruitment. About 20 have traveled to Somalia for training and at least three were used as suicide bombers inside Somalia.
