0 US state terrorism kills 17 in Somalia

A US assassination drone strike has killed at least 17 people and wounded nearly 67 others in southern Somalia, Press TV reports.

The attack occurred in a civilian region near the town of Dhobley in southern Somalia on Tuesday.

Somalia is the one of the countries where the United States has used remote-controlled drones to launch deadly missile strikes.

 In October, Washington admitted to flying unmanned aerial vehicles from Ethiopia over some North African countries.

The US military has used assassination drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.

Washington claims the airstrikes, which are authorized by the Central Intelligence Agency, target militants, though most such attacks have resulted in civilian casualties.

Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991, when warlords overthrew former dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.
