Several killed in Somalia airstrike

Several people are believed to have been killed in an airstrike in southern Somalia apparently targetting a house used by members of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shebab militia, officials and witnesses said Sunday.
Abdukadir Mohamed Nur, a Somali government official in the lower Shabele region, said several Shebab militants died.
“Many Al-Shebab militants were killed in the airstrike,” he said, without giving details on who was targeted and which country carried out the attack.
A resident in Dinsoor, Ali Yare, told AFP by telephone that four civilians may have been wounded or killed in the attack.
“We heard a very loud explosion and a few minutes later I saw cars rushing to the scene, some of them returned with casualties. Four civilians were among the casualties,” he said. “We don’t know who was the target because the area was sealed off.”
