09-13-13 DBA FLAKUS - TERRORIST DEATH-ALABAMA


NEWS THAT U.S.-BORN TERRORIST, OMAR HAMMAMI DIED IN SOMALIA WAS MET WITH SADNESS AND RELIEF BY PEOPLE WHO KNEW HIM IN THE MOBILE, ALABAMA, SUBURB OF DAPHNE. MANY PEOPLE THERE WERE SHOCKED THAT A LOCAL BOY HAD TAKEN UP WITH AN AL-QAIDA-LINKED TERRORIST GROUP, AND HAMMAMI'S ACTIVITY WITH AL-SHABAB CREATED SOME FRICTION WITH MUSLIMS IN HIS HOMETOWN. BUT, AS VOA'S GREG FLAKUS REPORTS, SOME REMEMBER HIM AS A GOOD GUY.
