The U.S. military for the first time has conducted two airstrikes against Daesh (ISIS) fighters in Somalia, where the group is a growing presence in a country long threatened by Al-Qaeda-linked extremist group Al-Shabab.The U.S. said the strikes were carried out in coordination with Somalia's government.U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. military is attacking Daesh "10 times harder" in response to Tuesday's New York City truck attack. It was not immediately clear whether the Somalia strikes were carried out as presidentially directed retaliation for the truck attack that killed eight people.
