Commandos decided not to strike an al-Shabab leader’s compound in Somalia when they saw lots of children inside
The target of one of two U.S. counterterrorism raids over the weekend was a Kenyan terror suspect wanted in a plot to attack the parliament building and U.N. headquarters in Nairobi, but the mission to capture him, in Somalia, had to be aborted.
His face has never been seen by the public but he goes by the name Ikrimah and he is a senior planner for the Somali terrorist group known as al-Shabab. He will now also be known as the one who got away from SEAL Team Six, which failed to capture him in a pre-dawn raid.
