The Pentagon says that a US air strike has killed more than 150 al-Shabab militants in Somalia.

 Spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the strike hit a training camp where a "large-scale" attack was being planned.

 Davis said the strike, by both drones and manned aircraft, took place on Saturday and targeted Raso Camp, a training facility about 120 miles north of the capital, Mogadishu.

 The camp had been under surveillance for some time, and there was a sense that the operational phase was about to happen.
