(Bloomberg) --
Ethiopia’s air force attacked a base used by al-Qaeda-linked militants in Somalia last week and killed about 35 fighters, Fana Broadcasting Corp. reported.
The Jan. 24 raid targeted an al-Shabaab installation in Burr Haybe, 75 kilometers (47 miles) east of the southern town of Baidoa, the ruling party-controlled broadcaster said on its website, citing Ethiopia’s defense ministry. Among those killed was the head of operations in the area, it said.
