US places $23m reward for Boko Haram leader, Shekau, 4 others

The US today Monday June 3rd posted up to $23 million in rewards to help track down five leaders of militant groups accused of spreading terror in west Africa.

The highest reward of $7 million is offered for the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, who last week called on Islamists in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq to join the bloody fight to create an Islamic state in Nigeria.

The US State Department’s Rewards for Justice program also targeted Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), offering its first ever bounties for wanted militants in west Africa.


Up to $5 million was posted for Al-Qaeda veteran Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the one-eyed Islamist behind the devastating attack on an Algerian gas plant in January in which 37 foreigners, including three Americans, were killed.

A further $5 million was offered for top AQIM leader Yahya Abou Al-Hammam, reportedly involved in the 2010 murder of an elderly French hostage in Niger.

 Malik Abou Abdelkarim, a senior fighter with AQIM, and Oumar Ould Hamaha, the spokesman for Mali’s Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), were also targeted by the rewards program, which will give up to $3 million each for information leading to their arrests.

Honestly most of the trouble in the world are caused by muslims... Where is the peace in which they preach when innocent people are suffering for what does not concern them. The woolwich killing, the boston bombing, riots in the northern part of nigeria are caused by muslims, so which peace are they bringing. You muslim folk on here can curse or insult me but take a look around the world, turn on your television and listen to the news, most of the problems around the world are cause by you folks, you take the lives of people that speak the truth and want peace. How can you bomb and kill several people for your own selfish reasons. I am plainly speaking the truth, you muslim folks are free to curse, but the truth still remains what you believe in is what is bringing instability and grief to the world at large. Kindly drop your curseful comment below pls...

TRANS-SAHARA COUNTERTERRORISM PARTNERSHIP (TSCTP)
Established in 2005, the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership (TSCTP) is a U.S.-funded and implemented multi-faceted, multi-year effort designed to counter violent extremism and contain and marginalize terrorist organizations by strengthening individual country and regional counterterrorism capabilities, enhancing and institutionalizing cooperation among the region’s security and intelligence organizations, promoting democratic governance, and discrediting terrorist ideology. The core goals are to enhance the indigenous capacities of governments in the pan-Sahel (Mauritania, Mali, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, and Burkina Faso) to confront the challenge posed by terrorist organizations in the trans-Sahara; and to facilitate cooperation between those countries and U.S. partners in the Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia). TSCTP has been successful in slowly building capacity and cooperation despite political setbacks over the years caused by coups d’etats, ethnic rebellions, and extra-constitutional actions that have interrupted work and progress with select countries of the partnership. In 2011, some partner nations succeeded in disrupting the movement and operations of al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) in the trans-Sahara. For example, Mauritania and Mali defeated AQIM twice at Ouagadou Forest and Mauritania defeated AQIM at Bessiknou.

COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM (CVE)
Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) is a pillar of the Administration’s strategic approach to counterterrorism. Through a mix of local grants developed and managed by U.S. embassies and larger awards managed from Washington, the CVE program pursues three main lines of effort: (1) Provide positive alternatives to those most at-risk of recruitment into violent extremism; (2) Undermine the al-Qa’ida (AQ) ideology that glorifies violence; and (3) Increase partner capacity (civil society and government) in order to stem terrorist recruiting. All CVE activities put particular emphasis on locally tailored activities which build capacity at the community level.

To address the factors that create conditions conducive to recruitment and radicalization, the CVE program provides positive alternatives to populations found to be most at-risk of embracing AQ’s violent worldview. These include interfaith and intercultural tolerance programs, youth sports programs, and skills training. To counter AQ propaganda, the program amplifies local voices that undercut AQ’s legitimacy; these include victims of AQ terrorism, former militants, and women and other community leaders.

The CVE program also works closely with the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications (CSCC) which coordinates, orients, and informs government-wide public communications activities directed at audiences abroad, targeting violent extremists and terrorist organizations – especially al-Qa'ida (AQ) and its affiliates and adherents – by using communication tools to reduce radicalization by terrorists. Finally, to build the CVE capacity of civil society and governments, the program engages with partner nations to develop, support, manage and evaluate counter-radicalization plans and to identify research gaps. Countries’ efforts to disengage incarcerated violent extremists from terrorism and to prevent prisons from becoming venues for the propagation of violent extremism are a particular focus of the program’s

Monday's rewards, which will see a campaign of wanted posters launched in Mali, Nigeria and neighboring countries, acknowledged the growing links between AQIM and Boko Haram, which is under pressure from a Nigerian army offensive.

"They've had a relationship for some time. They send people back and forth for training, they've done the provision of arms back and forth," the State Department official said.

"The links are... not quite as solid as some of the other terrorist organizations," he said. "Nonetheless, it's a dangerous link, and it's something that we feel we should try and stop."


NIGERIA
The Boko Haram terror chief who came back from the dead
Shekau, in a video obtained by AFP last week, contradicted the military's assertions and claimed his forces had made significant gains against the army while sustaining little damage since the start of the offensive on May 15.

"Under his leadership, Boko Haram's capability has certainly grown," the State Department official told AFP.

He highlighted how the group set off "their first improvised explosive device in early June 2011. By August (2011) they used a car bomb against the United Nations facility," an attack which killed 25 people.

The State Department on Monday also updated its travel warning to US citizens planning on visiting Nigeria, warning in particular of the threat of kidnappings.

Shekau's whereabouts could not be determined in the video, in which he is shown seated and dressed in camouflage and a turban, with an AK-47 at his side.

But the State Department remains confident that Shekau, and the other four wanted men, remain in the region and are asking for tip-offs leading to their capture. More information is posted on the website www.rewardsforjustice.net.

Shekau was placed on a US blacklist last year, but Boko Haram has yet to be designated a foreign terrorist organization -- an absence which has raised eyebrows among regional experts.
