United States military kills six al-Shabab militants in Somalia

MOGADISHU Somalia (Xinhua) -- The United States military said Wednesday its special forces conducted an airstrike against al-Shabab terrorists in southern Somalia on Tuesday, killing six militants.

The U.S. Africa Command (Africom) said the airstrike, which was conducted in cooperation with Somali government, targeted an al-Shabab encampment in the vicinity of Yaaq Braawe, Bay region.

"The al-Shabab encampment served as a staging area for terrorists in the region.

"We currently assess this airstrike killed six militants and destroyed one vehicle," Africom said in a statement.

The U.S. army, which has increased airstrikes in the Horn of Africa nation in the recent past, said no civilians were injured or killed in the latest airstrike.

The U.S. forces alongside Somali and African Union forces have increased ground and air offensives against the militant group al-Shabab in the last few months.
