Somali militants threaten U.S. attacks to avenge leader’s death

“Somali Islamist militants have threatened attacks in east Africa and the United States, warning President Barack Obama he would hear ‘shocking news’ as punishment for a U.S. missile strike that killed the rebel group’s leader last week.

Al Shabaab made the threats late on Monday, hours after launching twin attacks inside Somalia against African peacekeepers and a government convoy. The death toll from those bombings rose to at least 18 on Tuesday, police said.”
