NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — News of a second, simultaneous raid by U.S special forces in Libya (launched at the same time as a similar Somalia attack) has led Islamic militants to threaten U.S. citizens and interests in Libya. In the special forces raid on Tripoli, Abu Anas al-Libi, a suspect in the 1998 US embassy bombings in East Africa, was captured outside his house on Saturday and is now in custody aboard a US Navy ship.
In the Somali attack, the home of Al-Shabaab leader Sheikh Moktar Ali Zubeyr (also known as Ahmad Amni Godanne) was stormed by members of Seal Team Six also on Saturday. Unlike in Libya where al-Libi was captured, Americans do not know if their main target in Somalia is dead or alive because that raid was cut short after special forces came under heavy fire.
