A recent US airstrike in Somalia killed about 60 al Shabaab militants in the largest strike against the group in nearly a year, the US military said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the US military said a strike last week near Harardere, Somalia, killed “approximately sixty terrorists.”

In November 2017, more than 100 militants from Islamist al Shabaab group were killed in a US airstrike.
