MOGADISHU, Somalia — A Somali militant group has posted a tape they claim was made by an American citizen who blew himself up during a suicide attack on an African Union base.

The website Somalimemo.net said Somali-American bomber Abdisalan Taqabalahullaah emigrated to the U.S. when he was 2 years old.

It was not possible to verify the claims and the U.S. Embassy was not able to comment.

The tape released Sunday featured a youth with an American accent urging Muslims not to "sit around and be a couch potato" but to carry out attacks in the United States, Europe and other countries.

Saturday's attack on the African Union base killed at least 10 people. The AU has not released official casualty figures but al-Shabab says dozens died.
