"In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, U.S. forces conducted two separate airstrikes against Al-Shabaab and ISIS, in Somalia on November 12, killing several terrorists", Africom said in a statement.

LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach
With Jones out, the Volunteers join the Florida Gators and Ole Miss Rebels as SEC teams searching for a new head coach. As bad as the season has gone, UT still has a slim chance at bowl eligibility; it must win both its remaining games.

"U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect Americans and to disable terrorist threats", AFRICOM said.

The U.S. military confirmed that it conducted the two airstrikes against the Islamist State (IS) and Al-Shabaab militants early Sunday in Somalia, killing "several terrorists". Previously, the US military had only been able to launch airstrikes against al-Shabab fighters in self-defense situations when African Union or Somali government troops accompanied by American advisers were under attack.

The attacks by unmanned drones ramp up the military's campaign against al-Shabab and the Islamic State group, the AP reported.

Al Shabab has been blamed for carrying out the deadliest single attack in Somalia's history last month, though there was no official claim of responsibility. Many of its fighters are reported to be former al-Shabab members who switched allegiances.
