A U.S. military drone strike on a vehicle carrying explosives in Somalia has removed "an imminent threat to the people of Mogadishu" by the Al-Shabab militant group, the U.S. Africa Command said Tuesday.The airstrike was carried out early Tuesday morning about 65 kilometers southwest of Somalia's capital, the U.S. statement said, adding that no civilians were killed. The U.S. military has carried out 32 airstrikes this year against the Somalia-based Al-Shabab and a small but growing presence of fighters linked to Daesh (ISIS).More than 500 U.S. military personnel are now in Somalia, the U.S. Africa Command said last month.
