The U.S. military hit the al-Shabab extremist group with airstrikes over the weekend, killing 62 militants in an operation that targeted a camp in southern Somalia. The six strikes did not harm any civilians, the U.S. says.

U.S. Africa Command says the "precision airstrikes" were conducted in close collaboration with Somalia's government. The strikes on Saturday killed 34 militants and the ones on Sunday killed 28, the U.S. says.

In 1996, Bunch was found guilty in Indiana for the arson-murder of her 3-year old son. She proclaimed her innocence for the next 16 years behind bars, until she was finally exonerated in 2012. She was 22 years old and six months pregnant with her second son when she first entered prison.
