US forces kill Islamic State leader in Somalian cave complex, officials say – BBC News

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.
