The money is being offered under the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" programme, which has paid out more than $125m to more than 80 people since 1984 for information leading to the arrest or death of terrorists.

Al-Shabaab is blamed for killing thousands of civilians, aid workers and peacekeepers in Somalia, Uganda, and Kenya since 2006.
