A US special forces soldier has been killed in an attack by suspected al-Shabab militants in southern Somalia, officials say.

Four other US soldiers and a Somali soldier were wounded in what appears to have been an ambush north of the port of Kismayo, US defence officials added.

The American forces were operating alongside Somali troops.

It was the first known US combat death in Africa since an ambush in Niger in October, the New York Times reports.

US President Donald Trump sent his condolences in a tweet, where he spelled "Somalia" "Somolia".
