U.S. fires missiles at Somalia terror target

The U.S. military struck "a target against a known al Qaeda terrorist" in southern Somalia early Monday, the Pentagon said.

Bryan Whitman, a Pentagon spokesman, would not release any other details on the strike, which occurred when it was still late Sunday in Washington.

A U.S. military official told CNN's Barbara Starr that the strike near the town of Dhoobley, close to the Somali-Kenyan border, involved precision missiles.

It was aimed at a "facility where there were known terrorists" affiliated with East African al Qaeda operations, according to the official. It is unclear whether the target was hit in the strike.

While referring details of the strike to the Pentagon, White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe stressed that "the United States is going to go after al Qaeda and al Qaeda-affiliated operatives wherever we find them.

"They are plotting and planning all over the world to destabilize the world, to inflict terror, and where we find them, we are going to go after them," he said.

The strike destroyed two houses -- killing three women and three children, and wounding another 20 people -- Dhoobley's District Commissioner Ali Nur Ali Dherre told CNN. Dherre said the remains of the missiles were marked "US K."

The U.S. military official said the United States is still collecting post-strike information and is not yet able to confirm any casualties.

He described Monday's strike as "very deliberate" and said forces tried to use caution to avoid hitting civilians.

Villagers have fled in fear of another strike, Dherre said.


I don't think their ..use caution to avoid hitting civilians is working considering three women, three children are killed and 20 wounded. I suppose these casulaties will be classed as terrorists on the record, to justify their murders.
