MOGADISHU - The United States said Somalia's army successfully conducted a mission to disrupt an illegal taxation checkpoint set up by al Shabab Islamist militants south of the capital Mogadishu on Wednesday, and said American forces were present at the raid.

The United States acknowledges having a small number of troops deployed in Somalia but rarely discusses their activities.

No comment was immediately available from the Somali government.

Washington said it launched air strikes on a separate al Shabab base on Saturday, killing more than 150 Islamist fighters, though the militants said the number was exaggerated.
