US special forces have carried out two separate raids in Africa targeting senior Islamist militants.

 

In Libya, US commandos are said to have captured an al-Qaeda leader accused of the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

 

Anas al-Libi was reportedly seized in Tripoli.

 

And a leader of the al-Shabab group was targeted in southern Somalia, but that raid appears to have failed.
