Kenyans Bomb Somali Airport
Attempt to destroy facilities of Islamic militant group
The Kenyan military says its jets have bombed an airport in Somalia—the last major city in the country held by extremist insurgents who are fighting African Union troops.
Kenya's military said Tuesday that its bombing of the Somali port city of Kismayo destroyed a warehouse and armory belonging to the Islamist militant group al-Shabab, which controls the city. Al-Shabab said on Twitter, however, that the three bombs which hit the airport didn't cause any casualties or losses.
