Barawe Somalia raid by same US navy Seal unit that killed Osama bin Laden

Saturday’s stealthy assault on Barawe Somalia was by the same US navy Seal unit that killed Osama bin Laden. George Little, the US defence secretary, said Abdulkadir Mohamed Abdulkadir, also known as Ikrima, was the focus of the pre-dawn amphibious assault that was beaten back after a heavy firefight. The Pentagon identified Abdulkadir as a top commander in the Islamist militant group al-Shabaab.There are conflicting reports of how Ikrima survived Saturday’s stealthy assault. One source claimed Abdulkadir was inside the targeted house and sustained injuries, while his special bodyguard, a non-Somali, was killed.

But in a voice recording posted on a pro-Shabaab website, its military spokesman Abdiasis Abu Mus’ab denied that any senior commander of the group was inside the house at the time. “We confirm that only security personnel were inside the house. No such high-target person was staying in the house.”

Bin Laden’s eldest wife, Khairiah Saber, was so upset that after she moved into the house in February last year that she collaborated with the CIA teams that were hunting him. “Absolutely, I’m sure about it,” said Mr Qadir. While Bin Laden lived on the third floor of the property with his youngest wife, Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, a Yemeni who was 19 when they married in 1999, another wife, Siham Saber, lived in another room on the same floor. That arrangement seems to work until the arrival of his eldest wife, Saudi-born Khairiah Saber, in early 2011.
