Washington, D.C. (Agencies + DIPLOMAT.SO) – The U.S. Department of State has removed the $5 million dollar bounty on the former deputy leader and founding member of the al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group Harakat al-Shabaab (HSM), Sheikh Mukhtar Robow earlier this week. Robow who served al-Shabaab as the terror group’s chief spokesperson and al-Shabaab’s southern regional commander of insurgent forces was put on the U.S. State Department’s ‘Rewards for Justice’ Program which falls under Executive Order 13224 signed into law on September 23rd 2001 during the Bush administration in 2012.

Mukhtar Robow Ali “Abu Mansur”, who is hiding in a small village near the town of Hudur, capital of Bakool region, southwest of Mogadishu, has special guards from his clan’s armed militia, where he cut his teeth as a Mujahideen fighter in Afghanistan in the 1980’s where he received training in the bin Laden camps in the mountains and fought to oust the Soviet “invaders” that were occupying the region.
