At least 62 US militants have been killed in Somalia in the past week by air strikes, the US govt reports.

CNN reports that “a strike on Saturday killed 34 militants, and a strike on Sunday killed 28 militants”, citing an official statement by the US Africa command, which went on to say the strikes were carried out in coordination with the Somali government.
The Al Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab militants have been using the remote areas around Gandarshe, Somalia, to “plot and direct terror attacks, steal humanitarian aid, extort local populace to fund its operations, and shelter radical terrorists”US says.
“The air strikes, among the deadliest this year, did not kill any civilians,” the New York Times says.
The air strikes over the weekend mark an escalation of activity by the US in Somalia, after 37 militants were killed in November and the number of air strikes carried out climbed to 45 this year from 35 strikes in 2017.
