U.S. Targets Al-Qaida in Somalia Airstrikes
U.S. helicopter gunships have launched a second day of attacks in Somalia, targeting suspected leaders of al-Qaida in East Africa.
Dozens of people have reportedly been killed. The Pentagon is not saying yet whether or not the attacks have been a success.
The focus of the airstrikes is thought to be an al-Qaida leader, Fazul Abdullah Mohammed. Fazul is wanted for his alleged involvement in the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.
