David Martin broke the news of the Somalia raid from the Pentagon for CBS, a story that NBC confirmed in passing later in its newscast. The targeted cell included suspected bombers of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. They were attacked by a commando AC-130 gunship based in Djibouti. The cell members had fled Mogadishu when Somalia's capital fell to Ethiopia and had been followed by unmanned aerial drones, Martin reported. "They started getting good intelligence on their whereabouts over the weekend."
