Text size Aa Aa

The US military says it carried out a missile strike in southern Somalia on Sunday evening.

The target was described as a “senior leader” affiliated with Al Qaeda and al-Shabab militants.

Most recently the group claimed responsibility for the September siege of the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi that killed at least 67 people.

It is not clear if the target was killed in the strike.
