The Somali jihadi-insurgent group Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen (Movement of Warrior-Youth; Al-Shabaab) has also carried out a kamikaze attack in revenge for the two leaders' deaths, which I wrote about in a PREVIOUS POST.
Background on the ISI, an umbrella for several of the most violent jihadi-insurgent groups operating in Iraq including Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI), and both leaders can be found in my guest editorial, "The Death of a Caliph: Will the Reported Killings of the Islamic State of Iraq's Two Senior Leaders Spell Out the End of the Self-styled Jihadi State?", on Prof. Juan Cole's Informed Comment blog.
The four attackers were identified as a Saudi, a Turk, a Pakistani from Swat, and an Afghan: Luqman al-Makki ("one from Mecca"), Musa al-Afghani, Musa al-Turki, and Na'im Allah al-Swati, "one from Swat Valley"). In scenes showing the planning of the attack, the four are seen studying what appears to be a high-quality map of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Clips of the four young men's "martyrdom" wills are interspersed with footage of the planning sessions and actual attack.
Stills from the video are below:
