US says strikes kill 4 al-Shabab members in Somalia

The U.S. military says it killed four members of the extremist group al-Shabab during a counterterrorism operation in Somalia this week.

The U.S. Africa Command says Monday’s strikes came in response to an attack by a “large group of armed al-Shabab fighters” on the joint operation by the U.S. and Somalia.

The U.S. says the two strikes near Tortoroow were made in self-defense.
