Somalia Raid May Have Killed al-Shabab Mastermind of Deadly Attack in Kenya, Pentagon Says

The mastermind of an attack on Garissa University College in Kenya that killed 148 people last year may have been killed in a raid Tuesday conducted by the Somali army, supported by U.S. military advisers, U.S. military officials said today. An assessment is still underway to determine whether senior al-Shabab leader Mohammed Dulyadeen was in fact killed in the raid, according to the Pentagon. Initial reports were received about “a ground operation conducted in southern Somalia Tuesday night, May 31, by the Somali National Army as part of operations targeting mid- and upper-level al-Shabab leadership,” Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza said in a statement.
