Somali troops stage raid on ‘senior’ ash-Shebab leaders: Official


According to AFP, internal security spokesman Mohamed Yusuf Osman said that members of the US-trained National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) carried out the attack inside Bardhere town, a stronghold of the Somali-led Al-Qaeda affiliate in Gedo region.

Osman said a police station and the district headquarters used by ash-Shebab militants and leaders were targeted in the raid.

NISA sources said that the ash-Shebab leader known as Yusuf Haji was killed in the operation and they were working to confirm whether senior ash-Shebab commanders, including intelligence chief Mahad Karate and Kenyan university massacre mastermind Mohamed Mohamud — also known by the aliases ‘Dulyadin’ and ‘Kuno’ — were in the building at the time of the raid.

Witnesses in Bardhere said loud explosions were heard during the night.
