At least 31 people have been killed in the latest attack by two US assassination drones near Somalia's southern town of Afmadow, Press TV reports.
Abdishakur Ahmed Madoobe, a Somali military official, confirmed the attack, adding that the aerial strike took place on Monday.
Somalia is the sixth country, where the United States has used assassination drones to launch missile strikes. The US military has also used drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.
Washington claims the airstrikes target militants, though civilians constitute the majority of the victims of such attacks.
The UN has slammed the American terror drone attacks as targeted killing and says they pose a challenge to international law.
Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991, when warlords overthrew former dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.
Strategically located in the Horn of Africa, the country remains among the ones generating the highest number of refugees and internally-displaced persons in the world.
