US air strikes 'kill' militants in Somalia

The US has killed six members of militant Islamist group al-Shabab in three air strikes in southern Somalia, the US Africa Command has said.
The operation was carried under new powers given to US forces by President Donald Trump in March, allowing for “lethal action” against the al-Qaeda affiliate.
Mr Trump designated some areas of Somalia as active war zones, meaning US forces required less high-level vetting to carry out strikes against the militants, US-based Newsweek magazine reported.
The US Africa Command has tweeted its statement about the latest operation.
