At least 30 members of Somalia's Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shabab militants were killed in a U.S. drone strike Thursday, the Kenyan government said, while backtracking on its earlier claim that the alleged mastermind of the Garissa University massacre was among the dead.In April, four Shabab militants massacred 148 people at the Garissa University in Kenya's northeast, in what was the group's deadliest single attack to date.The United States has in recent years launched numerous drone strikes against Shabab leaders, including a strike last September that killed the group's leader Ahmed Abdi Godane.Thursday's reported drone attack came just over a week before U.S. President Barack Obama is due in Kenya for his first visit to the country since he became president.
