SEAL Raid Targets Senior Al-Shabab Leader An early morning raid by Navy SEALs targeted one of the senior leaders of al-Shabab. The strike comes two weeks after al-Shabab militants attacked a mall in Kenya. The Defense Department not yet said if the leader was captured alive. The FBI says more than two dozen young Somali-Americans from the Twin Cities have been lured to terror training camps overseas. Abdi Bihi of the Somali Education and Social Advocacy Center says Saturday's raid is a good thing for families living in the state.
