Airwars Reports U.S.-Led Strikes Killed Up to 139 Somali Civilians Since 2007

The U.S. military has vastly underreported the number of civilians killed in U.S.-supported airstrikes in Somalia, with the number of civilian deaths as much as 69 times greater than acknowledged by U.S. Africa Command.

That’s according to data released Tuesday by the watchdog monitoring group Airwars, which found between 71 and 139 civilians have been killed in U.S.-backed strikes in Somalia since 2007.

That figure far exceeds AFRICOM’s official count of just two civilian deaths.
