Drone strike in Somalia kills 17 Al Shabab fighters

On Friday, three high-ranking members and 14 fighters of the al-Shabab militant group were killed when the US military used remote-controlled unmanned aerial vehicles in an attack on Dhoobley town, which is located near Kismayo, the capital of the lower Juba region and a port city about 500 kilometers (310 miles) south of the Somali capital Mogadishu, a Press TV correspondent reported on Saturday. On Thursday, nine civilians were killed and 30 others wounded in US airstrikes on the outskirts of Kismayo.
