MOGADISHU-Somalia's Islamist group al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for an attack in which a US commando was killed and four others were wounded when they came under fire in the country. His death was the first USA military death in Somalia since 1993.
A helicopter was brought in to evacuate the wounded.

And at least in Niger, U.S. Africa Command's General Thomas Waldhauser said commanders had been ordered to be "far more prudent" about the missions that were approved.
