“More than 40 Americans have been recruited and radicalised by Al Qaeda-linked terrorists in Somalia and have gone there to fight, it emerged today [July 27, 2011]. The U.S. government has said at least 21 Americans are believed to have travelled to Somalia to join the terror group al-Shabaab. Al-Shabaab has expanded its focus over the years and has aligned itself with other anti-Western terror groups, including Al Qaeda. …[Congressman] Mr [Peter] King [R-NY] said al-Shabaab is ‘engaging in an ongoing, successful effort to recruit and radicalise dozens of Muslim-American jihadis, who pose a direct threat to the U.S.’ ”
