US hits al-Shabaab
MOGADISHU: The US military has confirmed its special forces conducted a successful collective self-defence strike operation against an al-Shabaab troop concentration in Somalia on Sunday and vowed to dismantle the militants.
The US Africa Command vowed on Wednesday to intensify its onslaught to protect people, including Americans and its allies.
“We continue to work in co-ordination with our Somali partners and allies to systematically dismantle al-Shabaab, and help achieve stability and security throughout the region,” it said.
The airstrikes were about 480km south-west of Mogadishu. Xinhua
