The department is offering $5 million for information about Abdelbasit Alhaj Alhassan Haj Hamad and another $5 million for Mohamed Makawi Ibrahim Mohamed, who are accused respectively of shooting USAID diplomat John Michael Granville and Adbelrahman Abbas Rahama. The two men were arrested and sentenced to death in Sudan but escaped in 2010.
Separately, the department and the Treasury Department announced sanctions on the two men that freezes any assets they may have in the United States and bans U.S. residents from assisting them. The two fugitives are believed to be in Somalia.
