Officials say more than 100 al-Shabaab militants were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Somalia.
On Tuesday, authorities said the strike hit a training camp about 125 miles northwest of Mogadishu.
It was conducted in coordination with the Somali government, and is the largest number of reported deaths from a single U.S. strike since President Trump expanded operations against the al Qaeda-linked group.
Although the extremists have gradually lost control of key cities in Somalia, their terror continues with suicide attacks, gun attacks, and car bombs.
The U.S. has carried out about 30 airstrikes against al-Shabaab as the terror group attempts to topple down the country’s government, and push extreme Islamic ideologies.
