A Navy SEAL team part of the team six American Special Forces that killed Osama Bin Laden attacked the town of Baraawe in southern Somalia. The target of the attack was top leaders of Al-Shabab terrorist group. In the operation pentagon confirmed one of those leaders was killed, but Navy SEAL encountered unexpected resistance so they cannot take the body of the terrorist with them for positive identification. Unconfirmed repots say the target was the notorious leader of Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Shabab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane and they have captured him alive. The official USA government is denying that they captured any one in Somalia.

At the same day on the other side of Ethiopia in Libya ten members of the American Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Delta Force) conducted a very successful military operation in the capital city of Libya, Tripoli. The Delta forces captured Abu Anas al Liby a high ranking Al-Qaeda leader in Libya. Anas al Liby who is responsible for the American embassy attacks in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 was one of the FBI’s most wanted and he had five million dollars bounty on his head.

The American Delta Force members armed to the teeth in masked faces surrounded Abu Anas al Liby's car and blocked it with three cars when he was returning from morning prayers.  Abu Anas al Liby tried to reach for his gun in the glove compartment, but the Delta Force commandos smashed the window and pulled him out. The US government said he is kept in a secure location outside of Libya.

Sources say Al Liby is on his way to New York to face scores of charges by the American government. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that a pair of raids conducted in Africa by U.S. special forces signaled the ongoing determination of the United States to bring terrorists to justice and sent the message that "members of Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations literally can run but they can't hide."

The Libyan government protested saying the operation was a kidnapping and it wanted it’s citizen back to Libya.
