MOGADISHU—U.S. forces hunting al Qaeda suspects launched a fresh air strike on southern Somalia on Wednesday, a Somali government source said.
The latest attack followed mounting international criticism of a U.S. strike in the area on Monday which Somali officials said had killed many people.
The first attack was carried out by an AC-130 gunship, like the one pictured.
