Somalia's Shebab hail 'courageous' 9/11 hijackers
NAIROBI (AFP) - Somalia's Al Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgents on Wednesday celebrated the anniversary of the Sept 11, 2001 attacks with a Twitter eulogy for the "courageous" hijackers.
In a series of posts on Twitter, the Islamists vowed "the mujahideen will continue with their jihad against the West until the world is ruled by one sovereign state, an Islamic state".
"A single attack by the mujahideen shattered US dreams of global domination, tarnished their reputation and severely crippled their economy," the Shebab said in one of a series of posts.
"Today, the spark ignited by those courageous 19 martyrs has grown into a raging inferno that continues to threaten every kafir (infidel) aggressor," said another post.
