US military says conducted air strike against ISIS in Somalia

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.

"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.
