Libyan Al Qaeda leader – Abu Anas Al Liby – wanted for his role in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa, has been captured alive in Tripoli by U.S. Special Operations forces, Fox News confirms.
This is the second development today with Islamic terrorists being targets of U.S. Special Forces, prompting speculation of a round up fueled by some break in intelligence, although PPD cannot confirm that is true.
Moments ago, Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin broke the story that US Navy SEALS have conducted a raid of the Al Shabaab militant group in Somalia, killing at least one militant. The group is linked to last month’s Kenya mall attack that killed more than 60 people.
In Somalia, officials say international military forces carried out a pre-dawn strike Saturday against foreign fighters in the town of Barawe, which they have said was a strike aimed at “high-profile” targets.
Fox News confirms the strike two weeks after Al Shabaab militants attacked Nairobi’s Westgate Mall.
