In Somalia, an airstrike from an unmanned U.S. drone has killed 60 people near a coastal town northeast of Mogadishu—the deadliest U.S. attack on Somalia in the last year. The Pentagon says all of the dead were al-Shabab fighters, though the claim could not be independently verified. The U.S. has conducted at least 27 airstrikes on Somalia so far this year, and the Pentagon has some 500 troops in Somalia.
