Pentagon: US air strike in Somalia killed senior al Shabaab leader
WASHINGTON - A US air strike last week killed a senior leader of the al Qaida-linked militant group al Shabaab in Somalia, the Pentagon said on Monday.

Hassan Ali Dhoore was killed in a US air strike targeting him on March 31, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said. Dhoore was a member of al Shabaab's security and intelligence wing, and was involved in the planning of high-profile attacks, Cook said.

Dhoore planned and oversaw attacks resulting in the deaths of at least three Americans, Cook said.
