Reveal the "hideout of the idiot Obama" and 10 camels could be yours.
That's the prize on offer from Somali militant group Shabaab al-Mujahideen for anyone who can lead them to US president Barack Obama, reports the Daily Mail.
If camels aren't your thing, they're also offering 10 chickens and 10 roosters for the "hideout of the old woman Hillary Clinton".
The rewards are in stark contrast to the bounties on offer from the US State Department, however. They're offering $5 million to anyone who reveals the whereabouts of senior al-Shabaab leader and fundraiser Fuad Muhammad Khalaf, who made the counter-offers on a recording posted to jihadist websites.
Also up for grabs is US$7 million for the whereabouts of al-Shabaab founder, Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed.
A camel goes for around US$700 in Somalia, according to CNN. But Khalaf begs to disagree.
"Five million dollars is equivalent to 200 camels today," he said, putting the value of a camel closer to US$25,000.
Neither side put a dollar value on chickens or roosters.
