The U.S. Africa Command said it killed four al-Shabaab extremists, including a former commander, in self-defense airstrikes, according to a statement released Tuesday.
The U.S. military unit said al-Shabaab extremists on Monday attacked Somali troops and some U.S. advisers outside the port city of Kismayo. Somali forces returned fire, killing several of the militants. The United States intervened when the attack continued.
