Drone strike kills at least two in Somalia: residents

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - A suspected U.S. drone strike killed at least two Islamist al Shabaab insurgents driving in a car south of the Somali capital Mogadishu, residents said on Monday. The drone fired a missile at the car in the outskirts of Jilib town in the Middle Jubba region, some 120 km to the north of the port of Kismayu to the south. Although the United States does not report its activities in Somalia, drones have been used in recent years to kill Somali and foreign al Shabaab fighters.
