MOGADISHU - Kenyan troops have crossed into Somalia and have driven out al Shabaab militants from two bases near the Kenyan border in a joint operation with Somali soldiers, a Somali military commander said on Sunday.

Kenya has said it would hunt the al Qaida-linked insurgents following last week's kidnapping of two Spanish aid workers.

Abdi Yusuf, a senior Somali military commander, told Reuters warplanes struck two al Shabaab bases in southern Somalia but could not confirm if the jets belonged to Kenya.
