Mogadishu: Al Qaeda-affiliate Al Shabaab has said it has captured a drone which fell in the Bay region of Somalia.

The militants said on Sunday they were in possession of the drone which they claimed belonged to the US after it came down near El Bashir village, Xinhua news agency reported.

There was no comment from the Somali government or the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) which has been battling the militant group alongside the Somali National Army.

The US has been carrying out drone attacks against Al Shabaab which have killed senior leaders and intelligence commanders of the group.

A resident of the area who spoke to a radio station said the drone fell on his farm and caused a scare.

"We ran away fearing it could explode. Al Shabaab militants in the area came over and carried it away in a car," he said.
