Somalia’s al-Shabab commanders ‘killed’ in strike

leave a comment »

An air strike in southern Somalia has killed two senior commanders of the militant Islamist group, al-Shabab, residents have told the BBC.

The strike destroyed the vehicle the militants were travelling in between the towns of Jilib and Barawe, seen as a major base of al-Shabab, they said.

The US launched a failed raid in Barawe earlier this month to capture an al-Shabab commander.

Al-Shabab is the main al-Qaeda-linked group in East Africa.

A Kenyan military source told the BBC their troops had raided Jilib, and that there might have been some casualties.

However, correspondents say it is unlikely that they carried out the air strike.
