The U.S. government is offering a reward for information leading to the location of an American citizen believed to be working with the Somalia-based terrorist group Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen, also known as al-Shabaab.
Jehad Serwan Mostafa, approximately 31 years old, was born in Wisconsin, grew up in the San Diego area and attended the University of California. He left the United States in 2005, traveling in Somalia, Yemen, Ethiopia, Kenya and other African nations. Sometime during that period he is believed to have become associated with al-Shabaab, training fighters and perhaps leading them in attacks.
He is 185 centimeters tall, weighs approximately 77 kilos, and has blue eyes, brown hair, and a full brown beard. He is known to wear eyeglasses and has a large scar on his right hand. He has used the aliases Ahmad Guery and Emir Anwar

For his alleged activities with the terrorist group, a United States District Court has charged Mostafa with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists; conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization; and providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
The Rewards for Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the capture or conviction of Mostafa, who is currently believed to be in Somalia.
