Kenyan jets bomb Somali rebel base, kill 14

Published: 01.15.12, 19:33 / Israel News

Kenyan jets bombed an al Shabaab rebel base in southern Somalia on Sunday, killing a family of seven as well as seven fighters from the insurgent group linked to al Qaeda, residents said. Kenya sent troops into anarchic Somalia in October after raids and kidnappings it blamed on al Shabaab, but the advance has slowed and regional insecurity is no better. Somali rebels killed seven people in an attack inside Kenya last week.
