Al-Shabab Confirms US Strikes

Somali militant group Al-Shabab confirmed on Tuesday that the United States had bombed an area it controlled, but said the US figure of more than 150 casualties was an exaggeration. The Pentagon had said it launched airstrikes on a training facility on Saturday that had killed 150 fighters with the Al-Qaeda-linked group in the Horn of Africa nation. “The US bombed an area controlled by Al-Shabab. But they exaggerated the figure of casualties. We never gather 100 fighters in one spot for security reasons. We know the sky is full of planes,” the group’s military spokesman, Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, told Reuters. He did not give a casualty figure.
