Al-Shabab official killed in joint Somali-US military operation

A senior al-Shabab official has been killed in a joint military operation by Somali army and US Special Forces in southern Somalia, the army said.

The commander, identified only as Aruriyow, had been hiding in the village of Arare in Lower Jubba region and was a senior al-Shabab financial official, according to Abdi Yare, a Somali army commander.

The US is helping Somali and African Union (Amisom) forces defeat al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-linked group which is fighting to overthrow the internationally-backed Somali government.

A US soldier was killed earlier this month in southern Somalia when al-Shabab attacked a base near Kismayo.
