“We are assessing the results of the operation and will provide additional information as and when appropriate,” Pentagon press secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.

No other details on Monday’s operation were immediately available.

Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the deadly siege at the upmarket Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya, a year ago that killed at least 67 and injured more than 170.
