Somalian al-Qaida affiliate recruited dozens in US

An al-Qaida-affiliated group in Somalia, al Shabaab, has recruited more than 40 Muslim Americans to its battle in the war-ravaged country and at least 15 have been killed, a congressional report said on Wednesday.
US officials have become increasingly worried about the group, particularly after capturing an al Shabaab commander who had allegedly been a liaison with al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, an active Yemeni group that has tried to strike the United States.Of the more than 40 Americans who have joined the cause, as many as 21 are believed to still be at large and unaccounted for, according to the staff report.
