The United States says it has killed 62 al-Shabab militants in air strikes it carried out in Somalia over the weekend.
The US Africa Command (Africom) said all six strikes targeted a known al-Shabab encampment near the southern town of Gandrashe.
Africom said no civilians were killed or injured – but there’s been no independent confirmation of this.
The American force say the air strikes were part of a campaign to prevent the Islamist group establishing safe havens in southern and central Somalia, according to BBC.
