U.S. Drone Strike Kills Up to 150 Somali Militants

The Pentagon says the United States Military has stopped what they called an imminent threat against troops and peace in Africa.

They say a U.S. drone strike in Somalia killed up to 150 al-Shabaab fighters.

The strike happened Saturday at a training site about 120 miles north of the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

Intelligence says the group was close to carrying out a "large-scale" attack.

It’s not clear where the attack would have been.
