WASHINGTON The United States is offering $10 million for information leading to the arrest of two Americans in Somalia who are on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists List.

The State Department says the rewards are $5 million each for al-Shabab members Omar Shafik Hammami and Jehad Mostafa.

It says the 28-year-old Hammami is a resident of Daphne, Ala., who moved to Somalia in 2006. He has served as a propagandist for the al Qaeda-affiliated organization, attracting English-speaking youth with rap songs and video statements, and as a military commander.

The department says Mostafa is a U.S. citizen who lived in San Diego before moving to Somalia in 2005.

He's served as a media expert and leader of foreign fighters for al-Shabaab, which has fought for years for control over Somalia.

Both men have been indicted in the U.S. on terror charges.
