Somali jihadis may be planning retaliatory attacks after U.S. airstrike killed al-Shabab's leader

Somali militants may be planning retaliatory attacks after a U.S. airstrike killed the leader of Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab this week.

Somalia’s security ministry placed government buildings on high alert after the Pentagon confirmed Friday that the U.S. operation in Somalia killed Ahmed Godane.

Intelligence reports indicate the group is planning attacks in Somalia, according to Mohamed Yusuf, a spokesman for the security ministry.

The U.S. military said it killed Godane in a thunderous attack Monday.
