The U.S. Africa Command is confirming the deaths of two senior commanders of the al-Shabab extremist group in recent military operations in Somalia.

A statement Wednesday says senior al-Shabab military commander Abdullahi Haji Da'ud was killed in a U.S. airstrike on May 27. The Pentagon last week announced that a U.S. drone strike had targeted him, but U.S. officials at the time said they couldn't confirm if he was killed.
