TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY PETER MARTELL An undated photo of Abu Mansoor al-Amriki [C] aka 'the American' taken at an undisclosed location is seen on a mobile phone screen in Nairobi, Kenya on February 07, 2013. Once his reputation was of a feared fighter, an American born extremist who left small town Alabama to wage war alongside Al-Qaeda linked Somali Islamists and who called on other foreigners to join. Today, Omar Hamami -- better known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki or 'the American' -- has split from the insurgents who want to kill him. He spends his days firing off insults of corruption and abuse at his former Shebab colleagues, even referring to himself as the 'former poster boy' of the group.
