The FBI’s list of most wanted terrorists [2]now includes an American accused of working with terrorists in Somalia, the Associated Press reports [3].

The AP reported that the FBI on Wednesday added former Alabama resident Omar Shafik Hammami to the most wanted list, which has grown to 31 since being created a month after the terror attacks of 2011.

Hammami is accused of being a senior leader in al-Shabab, a Somalia-based terror group with links to al-Qaida.

The FBI’s counterterrorism division nominates suspects to the list.

A nominee must be under a criminal indictment, according to the AP.
