WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. official tells The Associated Press that Navy SEALs have raided a Somali coastal town looking for an al-Qaida suspect in connection with the Nairobi shopping mall attack, but did not get their target.
Two U.S. officials who discussed the raid spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be identified.
One official describes the raid as a capture operation against a high-value target. That official says U.S. forces engaged al-Shabab militants and inflicted some casualties, but no U.S. service members were harmed.
In Washington, Pentagon spokesman George Little is confirming that the U.S. has been involved in a counterterrorism operation against a known al-Shabab terrorist, but he is not providing details.
Al-Shabab militants killed at least 67 people Sept. 21 at Nairobi's Westgate Mall.
