BOSASO, Somalia - The US military said on Monday it had carried out an air strike against Islamic State militants in northeast Somalia, killing one person.

Islamic State has been gathering recruits in the region, although experts say the scale of its force is unclear and it remains a small player compared to the al Shabaab group.

"In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, US forces conducted an airstrike against ISIS, in northeastern Somalia on Nov. 27, killing one terrorist," the US Africa Command said in a statement.
