U.S. carries out daring raids over the weekend

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - The U.S. carried out a pair of daring raids this weekend to grab suspected terrorists.


Delta Force Commandos captured Abu Anas Al Liby in Tripoli, Libya. He's believed to be behind the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in Africa. At the same time, Navy SEALs raided a terrorist camp in Somalia in an effort to grab one of the senior leaders of the Al-Shabaab Terrorist group. However, the SEALs were caught in a firefight and had to retreat.

Al-Shabaab is responsible for the deadly attack on a Kenya mall two weeks ago.
