MOGADISHU, Somalia — The U.S. military denied reports from residents and rebels in southwestern Somalia that a suspected U.S. drone with six missiles crashed Monday in a rebel-held village in the Gedo region.

All “assets in this area are accounted for and we have no indication that any were involved in this reported incident,” Chuck Prichard, spokesman for the U.S. Africa Command, said.

Al-Shabab, Somalia’s Islamic terror group, claimed on its radio station that militants seized the crashed drone with the missiles.
