Alshahid – 13 September 2010

An American national allegedly connected Al-Qaeda linked terror group has been killed in Somalia according to intelligence sources. The fighter, a Somali-American man known as Dahir Gurey Sheikh Ali Guled, was found dead in Mogadishu after a street battle between the militant group Al-Shabaab, and pro-government forces.

A US official told ABC News that Gurey was believed to be an American citizen who arrived in Somalia earlier this year, but cautioned that the US government has not independently confirmed Mr. Gurey’s death or nationality. Somali officials said the
man had documents on him that indicated he was American.
