The Islamist militant that Navy SEALs tried to capture in Somalia over the weekend is a Kenyan suspected of planning several attacks in his home country over the past two years, The Associated Press reports.
Abdulkadir Mohamed Abdulkadir had plotted to attack Kenya's parliament building and the United Nations headquarters in Nairobi, according to a Kenyan government intelligence report obtained by the wire service. The report, however, doesn't link him to last month's attack on an upscale Nairobi shopping mall that killed more than 60 people.
The Navy SEAL raid on an al Shabaab stronghold on Saturday was aborted after failing to capture Abdulkadir alive, an unidentified senior U.S. official told CNN Monday.
