US Says Carried Somalia Raid that Killed Al-Shabaab Commander

The Department of Defense says it killed a terrorist leader associated with al-Qaeda in Somalia.

At least two people were killed in an apparent auto bomb blast on a major street in Somalia's capital Friday evening, police said, just hours after the US military confirmed that a recent airstrike had killed a high-level al-Shabab extremist commander blamed for deadly attacks in Mogadishu.

The US military has confirmed it killed a high-level commander of the al-Shabab extremist group with an air strike in Somalia over the weekend.

US forces in Somalia recently conducted a strike that killed Ali Muhammad Hussein, the al-Shabaab terrorist known as Ali Jabal, the USA military has confirmed.

The air strike occurred near Tortoroow, an al-Shabab stronghold in the Lower Shabelle region in southern Somalia, the statement added.

Ali also had served as the extremist group's shadow governor for Mogadishu and had been one of al-Shabab's most outspoken officials.

Facebook's troubled Stories feature is coming to the desktop
TechCrunch says there is a small question mark in the Stories section that explains what the feature is all about. So maybe bringing stories to Facebook's desktop version will get people more hype about using the feature.

A brief statement on the attack from the U.S. Africa Command said the airstrike took place Sunday at about 3 p.m. local time.

Al-Shabab, which is allied to al-Qaida, claimed responsibility for the attack on Lafey police station near the border with Somalia.

The meeting came a day after the militants carried out two deadly attacks in Somalia.

A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed and two troops were wounded in May during a raid on one of the group's compounds in what appeared to be the first U.S. combat death in the African country since the 1993 "Black Hawk Down" incident. At least 18 soldiers were killed, according to a senior Somali military officer.

Last Sunday, at least five people were killed and more than 10 others were wounded in another auto bomb explosion in the capital.
