Helicopters Strafe al-Qaida in Somalia
By SALAD DUHULAssociated Press

MOGADISHU, Somalia--Attack helicopters strafed suspected al-Qaida fighters in southern Somalia on Tuesday, witnesses said, following two days of airstrikes by U.S. forces--the first U.S. offensives in the African country since 18 American soldiers were killed here in 1993. In Washington, a U.S. intelligence official said American forces killed five to 10 people in an attack on one target in southern Somalia believed to be associated with al-Qaida. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the operation's sensitivity, said a small number of others present, perhaps four or five, were wounded.

The operation's SENSITIVITY? Why would STARTING ANOTHER WAR be sensitive????
