U.S. Says Airstrike in Somalia Killed an al-Shabaab Militant

The U.S military says an airstrike in Somalia killed an al-Shabaab militant on Tuesday.

It was coordinated with the Federal Government of Somalia.

According to U.S. Africa Command, no civilians were wounded or killed.

Al-Shabaab is a terrorist network aligned with al-Qaida.

The U.S. military says it has been pressuring militants’ freedom of movement and supporting Somali partners “as they continue to take the fight to al-Shabaab.”
