Five Militants Killed In Somalia Air Strike

Somalia Bomb Attack

The US military says it has carried out an airstrike in Somalia, killing five members of the Islamist militant group al-Shabab.

This comes a day after it said four jihadists were killed in a similar attack.

The United States Africa Command (Africom) says it does not believe any civilians were injured in the attacks, although it is aware of reports on social media of civilian casualties.

Over the weekend, an al-Shabab commander who had co-ordinated attacks on military targets was said to have been killed in another airstrike.

These attacks by the US military have become increasingly common under Donald Trump’s presidency, but they are often followed by reports from inside Somalia that civilians have been hit.

Below is the statement tweeted by Africom:
