A US air strike has killed more than 150 al-Shabab militants in Somalia, the Pentagon says.

美国五角大楼报道,美空袭索马里"青年党" 炸死150多名恐怖分子。

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

美国五角大楼发言人戴维斯称,美军在空袭中击中了一个策划大规模攻击行动的训练营地。

"We know they were going to be departing the camp and they posed an imminent threat to US and [African Union] forces," Captain Davis said. "Initial assessments are that more than 150 terrorist fighters were eliminated," he added.

他说,“我们知道这些人即将离开营地,他们对美国和非盟军队构成了迫在眉睫的威胁。初步估计显示,150多名恐怖武装分子被消灭。”

Mr Davis said the strike, by both drones and manned aircraft, took place on Saturday and targeted Raso Camp, a training facility about 120 miles (195km) north of the capital, Mogadishu.

戴维斯表示,空袭行动是在3月5日(周六)发动的,空袭行动中包括无人机和有人驾驶的战机,目标是在索马里首都摩加迪沙以北195公里处的拉索(Raso)训练营。

The camp had been under surveillance for some time, according to Mr Davis. "There was a sense that the operational phase was about to happen," he said. He said the group had neared the completion of specialist training to conduct "offensive operations", but did not give any details about the alleged plans.

他说,过去一段时间美军一直在监视着这个训练营地。营地中的武装分子已经接近完成一项发动“进攻行动”的专业训练,但是他没有明确指出这些武装分子策划发动攻击的细节。

Al-Shabab, an affiliate of al-Qaeda, was pushed out of Mogadishu by African Union peacekeeping forces in 2011 but has continued to launch frequent attacks in its bid to overthrow the Western-backed government.

据悉,索马里“青年党”是基地组织的一个分支,在2011年被非盟维和部队赶出索马里首都摩加迪沙,但是他们仍旧持续不断地发动攻击,试图推翻受到西方支持的政府。
