MOGADISHU - Jets bombed a base run by the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabaab rebels north of Somalia's Kismayu port on Saturday but it was not clear if there were any casualties, residents and officials said.

The jets hit the militants' base near the village of Daytubako, 135 km (84 miles) north of Kismayu, the nerve-center of their operations in the Horn of Africa country.

Residents in Jilib, a town 15 km from the scene, said they could see the jets and hear the deafening thunder of bombs.
