(CNN)U.S. special operations forces and Somali commandos captured an undisclosed number of high-value Al-Shabaab figures during a joint nighttime raid on one of the terror group's camps, a Somali government spokesman said Wednesday.
The teams also killed at least one senior Al-Shabaab leader and several members of the Islamist extremist organization in the Tuesday night operation, according to Abdisalam Aato, the Somali spokesman. The Somali commandos were part of a special unit known as Danab, which means lightning in Somali.
"The government of Somalia welcomes working with the United States and other forces to defeat terror group Al-Shabaab," Aato said.
