by Chris Patterson

MILWAUKEE -- A $10 million reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two American born terrorists, Jehad Serwan Mostafa and Omar Shafik Hammami. These two are in the top ten terrorists wanted by the FBI, and one has ties to Wisconsin.

Mostafa was born at Waukesha Memorial Hospital in 1981, and his parents lived in Milwaukee. The U.S. State Department says Mostafa and Hammami have strong ties to a Somalia-based terrorist group.

Hammami, an Alabama native, served as a military leader for Al-Shabaab and tried to recruit English speaking young people through videos and rap songs. Mostafa is accused of leading a group of fighters for the same Al-Qaeda linked groups.

Mostafa's family moved from Milwaukee to San Diego in 1993. Both men are believed to be living in Somalia.

The U.S. State Department is putting up a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of each man.
