60 Shabaab terror group members killed: US army


The US military said on Tuesday that a recent air strike on Somali al-Shabaab militants killed 60 of them, in reportedly the biggest strike against the movement in about a year.

In a statement by the US army, a strike carried out last week near Xarardheere in Somalia killed "nearly 60 terrorists," according to Reuters.

More than 100 Shabaab militants were reportedly killed in a US air strike in November 2017.


Shabaab has been designated as a terrorist organization by Australia, Canada, the UAE, the UK and the US.
