U.S. envoy calls Qaeda's Somali offshoot's camel reward for Obama's head 'absurd'
London, June 12 (ANI): A top U.S. envoy has dismissed a reward of 10 camels for information about President Barack Obama's hideout by Somali militants as "absurd".
Al-Qaeda's offshoot, Al-Shabab, made the mock offer after the U.S. announced rewards of 3-7 million dollars for various militant commanders, reports the BBC.
Al-Shabab also offered chickens for information about U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Assistant Secretary of State for African affairs Johnnie Carson became the first top U.S. official in two decades to visit Mogadishu over the weekend. He said his trip to Mogadishu, which lasted a few hours, was to note the "significant progress" made against Al-Shabab.
However, the Al-Qaeda group still controls much of the country.
After the U.S. put bounties on the heads of Al-Shabab commanders, senior militant official Fuad Muhammad Khalaf had announced: "Whoever reveals the hideout of the idiot Obama will be rewarded with 10 camels, and whoever reveals the hideout of the old woman Hillary Clinton will be rewarded 10 chickens and 10 roosters."
