WASHINGTON - A US air strike against al Shabaab militants in Somalia killed four members of the al Qaeda-linked Islamist insurgency group, the US military said in a statement on Thursday.

The strike, which took place on Wednesday near the town of Jamaame, was coordinated with the Somalia's government and the US Africa Command said it did not assess that any civilians had been killed in the strike.
