Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information on Mohamoud Abdi Aden, a leader of the al-Shabaab terrorist group who helped plan the January 15, 2019 attack on the DusitD2 Hotel complex in Nairobi, Kenya. During the assault, al-Shabaab gunmen armed with explosives, automatic weapons, and grenades attacked the DusitD2 commercial center, a 6-building complex of shops, offices, and a hotel. At least 21 people, including one U.S. citizen, were killed in the assault.
In October 2022, the Department of State designated Aden as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) under Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, as amended.
