The US military launched a missile strike in Somalia on Sunday targeting a suspected Shabaab militant leader, defense officials said.

One of the officials said an unmanned drone launched the missile in the late evening hours, but declined to confirm the suspect's identity or whether the strike was successful.

The US government has "been tracking this guy for years," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

A second US official said the strike in the southeastern port town of Barawe "was against a senior Shabaab commander."
