BBC NEWS: ‘Foreign Fighters’ Die in Somalia

From those lovers of international terrorism at BBC NEWS:

A US Navy ship launches a guided missile. A US warship bombed targets in northeastern Somalia after Islamist fighters clashed with troops from the country’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland.

‘Foreign fighters’ die in Somalia

Foreign fighters from Britain, Sweden and Pakistan were among those killed by US missiles and Somali army operations, according to the Somali government.

A remote village in the Puntland region was bombarded on Friday, following the reported arrival of foreign militants.

As many as a dozen people were reported to have been killed, including at least six foreign Islamists, the government and army said.

The US has launched several strikes on alleged militants in Somalia this year.

The latest was carried out by a US warship off the coast, and aimed at hills around the village of Bargal, the government said.

The United States has refused to comment on the action.

Foreign fighters, Somali militants and members of the international terrorists including British nationals, Americans, Swedish, Pakistanis and Yemenis were killed in separate operations carried out by Puntland troops and US Navy forces,” the Puntland regional government said in a statement.

“The terrorists, who arrived in Puntland’s mountainous area of Bargal with boats from southern Somalia, have been defeated,” the statement said…

In typical fashion the BBC calls into doubt whatever it doesn’t want to believe with its ‘quotes.’

Still, there it is. Proof of President Bush’s claim that we can fight them over there or over here.

But our stateside watchdog media will do their best to ignore this report.
