(AP) A U.S. military official tells The Associated Press that Navy SEALs have raided a Somali coastal town looking for a specific al-Qaida suspect in connection with the Nairobi shopping mall attack, but did not get their target.


A former U.S. military official also confirms the raid by the SEALs, but no other details have been provided. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the raid by name. The Pentagon declined comment.


In Somalia, officials say international military forces carried out a pre-dawn strike Saturday against foreign fighters in the town of Barawe. Official say the strike was aimed at "high-profile" targets.


The strike comes two weeks after al-Shabab militants attacked Nairobi's Westgate Mall. The four-day terrorist assault killed at least 67 people.
