Maalim Salman

Up to $3 Million Reward

Maalim Salman was chosen by now deceased al-Shabaab leader Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed (Godane) to be the head of African foreign fighters for al-Shabaab. He has trained al-Shabaab’s non-Somali operatives and has been involved in operations in Africa targeting tourists, entertainment establishments, and churches.

Although focused mainly on operations outside of Somalia, Salman is known to reside in Somalia and train foreign fighters in Somalia before dispatching them elsewhere. Among other terrorist attacks, al-Shabaab was responsible for the September 2013 attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya that left at least 65 people dead.
