Al-Shabab's top leader was traveling in one of two vehicles hit Monday night by a U.S. military strike, a member of the Somali Islamic extremist group said Tuesday.
The spokesman would not say whether Somali Ahmed Abdi Godane, the rebel leader, was among the six militants killed.
The two vehicles were heading toward the coastal town of Barawe, al-Shabab's main base, when they were hit, Abu Mohammed told The Associated Press.
U.S. military forces attacked the extremist al-Shabab network in Somalia Monday, the Pentagon confirmed.
