MOGADISHU, Somalia -- A member of the Somali group al-Shabab says its leader was travelling in one of two vehicles hit Monday night in a U.S. military strike but the spokesman would not say if the leader was among the six militants who were killed.
Abu Mohammed told The Associated Press on Tuesday that six militants were killed in the attack. He said the two vehicles were heading toward the coastal town of Barawe, al-Shabab's main base when they were hit. He said al-Shabab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane was in one of the vehicles.
