LOCAL LEADERS REACT TO NEWS OF BIN LADEN DEATH


State Dept. warns of possible retaliation for U.S. operation against terrorist leader

 By Miriam Raftery

 

May 1, 2011 (San Diego’s East County) – Local leaders reacted with shock, joy, and relief to last night’s news that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces.
 

“It gives us certainly some hope,” Abdi Mohamoud, executive director of the Horn of Africa center in San Diego, told East County Magazine. Mohamoud, whose center serves African refugees and asylees including many Muslims from war-torn Somalia, added that “Al Shabaab, an affiliate of Al Qaeda which is burning down the whole country of Somalia, is a byproduct of this man, so it is a pain that is constantly with the refugees.”
