US Kills Two al-Shabab Militants in Somalia Air Attack

The United States military has claimed that it killed two militants on Sunday from the al-Shabab terror group during an air raid in near Libikus, in the Lower Juba region, US Africa Command (AFRICOM) said in a statement late on Monday.

AFRICOM said its forces and the Somali government’s “take great measures to prevent civilian casualties”.

“These efforts contrast with the indiscriminate attacks that al-Shabab regularly conducts against the civilian population,” AFRICOM said. “Violent extremist organisations like al-Shabab present long-term threats to Somali, regional and US interests.”
