US forces have killed Islamic State leader, Bilal al-Sudani, and 10 of his operatives in northern Somalia, American officials say.
A remote cave complex was raided by US special forces in a bid to capture Al-Sudani, who allegedly funded the group’s activities globally.
Analysts say the fact that US troops were sent to kill or capture Sudani, rather than using a less risky drone strike, indicates his significance.
“Al-Sudani was responsible for fostering the growing presence of ISIS in Africa”, US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said.
