MOGADISHIU - At least three foreign militants of the al-Qaida-linked al Shabaab rebels were killed in a strike on a car in a rebel stronghold in southern Somalia early on Friday, a senior Somali intelligence official and residents said.

The intelligence official, who declined to be named, said he was investigating reports that the explosion could have been caused by an airstrike or missile attack on a car carrying foreign fighters.

"At least three foreign militants were killed in the explosion, and we are investigating if it was air strikes or a missile and whether there are more casualties," the intelligence official told Reuters.

Residents said the strike took place in the lower Shabelle region, 60 km south of the capital Mogadishu.
