Rear Adm. John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, gives a briefing Tuesday on the U.S. strike on al-Shabab militants Monday night in Somalia.

A U.S. airstrike in Somalia killed at least six members of the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab, a militant commander said Tuesday. The group's leader was said to be in a car that was hit, but it wasn't immediately known whether he was among the dead.
