Western Special Forces' Raid Al-Shabaab Stronghold In Somalia

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/10357752/Western-special-forces-raid-al-Shabaab-stronghold-in-Somalia.html

The assault took place shortly before dawn on the coastal town of Barawe, 110 miles south of Somalia's capital, Mogadishu.

Ahmed Abdi Godane, the leader of al-Shabaab, is known to have stayed in Barawe in the past. The fishing town is in the heart of an area controlled by the al-Qaeda affiliate.

Al-Shabaab claimed that British and Turkish special forces carried out the raid and that one SAS officer was killed. However, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said that "no UK forces at all" were involved. Turkey's government made a similar denial. France, which has carried out raids in Somalia in the past, also said that none of its soldiers was deployed.

In Washington, Pentagon spokesman George Little said: "I decline comment."

..

Some reports suggested that helicopters were used; others said the assault was entirely seaborne. An al-Shabaab spokesman admitted that one fighter was “martyred”, but another report suggested that at least seven were killed.

The assault was on a two-storey house where foreign fighters stayed, residents said.

I wonder what is going on and who carried out this raid if in deed there was one.

John Gregson, Dickie Attenborough and a host of British and Aussie character actors. Like John Inman but with guns and grenades? :unsure:
