Al-Shabab militant jailed for life for attacking US base in Kenya

A military court in Somalia has sentenced a militant Islamist to life in prison for his role in a deadly attack on a US base in Kenya.
Farhan Mohamud Hassan was also convicted of being a member of al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda affiliate headquartered in Somalia.
Its fighters cross the border into Kenya to carry out attacks.
A US soldier and two contractors were killed in January’s attack on the base in the coastal region of Lamu.
It was the first attack by al-Shabab on US forces in Kenya, which has troops in the 20,000-strong Africa Union force battling the militants in Somalia.
The US often carries out air strikes in Somalia to target al-Shabab.
