Al Shabaab Members Killed in Possible Drone Strike 28 October 2013

Two senior Al Shabaab leaders were killed in a possible drone strike on Monday 28 October 2013.

Report by Aljazeera ‘US Drone Strike’ kills senior Al Shabab members in Jilib town in Somalia’s Middle Juba. The Al Shabaab members were travelling in a Suzuki car and included the group’s top explosive expert known as Anta. The comments on the report appear to give approval of the drone strike with a few lone voices questioning the effectiveness of drone strikes.

The BBC report – ‘Somali Al-Shabab commanders killed in strike’  28 October 2013 follows the same theme quoting eye witnesses and a Kenyan military source inferring the presence of Kenya troops having raided the town of Jilib situated 120 kilometres north of Kismayo.
