A US assassination drone attack has killed at least 21 civilians and injured several others in southern Somalia, Press TVreports.


The US drone carried out attacks Sunday morning near Kismayo city in southern Somalia, leaving 21 people dead and 67 others wounded.

The US has expanded the number of its aerial terror attacks by unmanned remote-controlled aircraft in Somalia. Consequently, many civilians have fallen victim to the unsanctioned assaults.

Somalia has become the sixth country where the US military has engaged in unauthorized aerial bombing campaigns through the use of its remote-controlled aircraft.

The United States has also deployed its assassination drones for aerial attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.

Washington claims the airstrikes target anti-American militants, though the far greater number of victims of such attacks are civilians.
