MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP)–A senior al-Qaida suspect wanted for the U.S. 1998 embassy bombings in East Africa has been killed in a U.S. airstrike in Somalia, a government official said Wednesday.

“I have received a report from the American side chronicling the targets and list of damage,” Abdirizak Hassan, the Somali president’s chief of staff, told the Associated Press. “One of the items they were claiming was that Fazul Abdullah Mohammed is dead.”

The official said it was not yet known if Abu Talha al-Sudani, believed to be an explosives expert, or another suspect, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, had been killed.

He also said the interim government had received its own local intelligence reports that Abdirahman Janaqow, one of the deputy leaders of the rival Islamist movement, had been killed in the attack.
