Somali Islamist militants have threatened attacks in east Africa and the United States, warning President Barack Obama he would hear "shocking news" as punishment for a U.S. missile strike that killed the rebel group's leader last week.Al-Shabab made the threats late Monday, hours after launching twin attacks inside Somalia against African peacekeepers and a government convoy. Godane publicly claimed responsibility for that assault, saying it was revenge for Kenyan and Western involvement in Somalia and noting its proximity to the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.A nurse at a Mogadishu hospital, Halima Ibrahim, said 25 people were being treated -- 16 civilians from the first car bomb and nine soldiers from a second attack on a Somali security convoy.
