Mogadishu-(Puntland Mirror) Two Al-Shabab militants were killed in U.S. airstrike in Somalia, the U.S. military’s Africa Command said in a Wednesday statement.

The strike took place about 46 km northeast of Kismayo port town in Lower Juba province, according to AFRICOM, adding that no civilians were killed.

This is the second attack against Al-Shabab in August.  A U.S. airstrike earlier this month in northwest of Mogadishu killed four militants.
