US strike in Somalia 'killed 22 civilians'

A Somali regional government official has demanded an explanation from the US after 22 civilians and Somali soldiers were reportedly killed in an airstrike.
Officials in the semi-autonomous region of Galmudug accused neighbouring Puntland of misleading the US into believing they had targeted extremists.
The Somali military confirmed its soldiers were killed in the strike.
Washington says the strike killed nine al-Shabab militants, but that it was investigating.
Residents in the city of Galkayo in the Galmudug region protested against the strike by burning American flags on Thursday.
