More than 100 al-Shabaab militants were killed Tuesday in a US airstrike in Somalia, the Pentagon announced, the latest in a series of strikes against the al Qaeda affiliated group and ISIS fighters in the war-torn country. The strike occurred 125 miles northwest of the capital of Mogadishu.
The State Department on Saturday requested all non-essential US citizen employees leave the Somali capital of Mogadishu due to "specific threat information against U.S. personnel on the Mogadishu International Airport."
