File photo shows site of a US drone attack in Somalia's capital city of Mogadishu.
I would call this photo "Life outside the Western bubble." Imagine living daily life and something like this can happen at anytime. This is life in occupied Palestine also. I've heard it described like this: "one minuet you are walking down the street with a friend, the next moment you look over and only the shoes are left of the person ." To whom do they address their grievance? Where can they hide from the US/Zionist psychopaths?
At least 46 people have been killed and several others injured during heavy US airstrikes in southern Somalia, Press TV reports. Washington claims the CIA-run strikes are meant to eliminate militants, but witness reports and figures offered by local authorities indicate the attacks have led to massive civilian deaths in these countries.
The casualties come after heavy airstrikes on al-Shabab training bases located in the outskirts of Elasha Biyaha, between the capital city of Mogadishu and its neighboring city of Afgoye on Thursday.
Two Somali officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told press TV that the attacks were carried out by US assassination drones and US AC 130 warplanes.
The US military uses remote-controlled drones in Somalia for reconnaissance operations and targeted killings.
Washington has been carrying out assassination attacks using the unmanned aircraft in other countries including Afghanistan, Libya Pakistan, and Yemen.

Somalia has not had an effective central government since 1991, when warlords overthrew former dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.
The weak Western-backed transitional government in Mogadishu has been battling al-Shabab fighters for the past five years and is propped up by African Union troops from Uganda, Burundi, and Djibouti.
