The death of the leader of Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels in a US air strike is a "very strong probability," but still remains unconfirmed, security sources told AFP Wednesday.

Pentagon press secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby confirmed that the late Monday attack was aimed at the group's leader Ahmed Abdi Godane, also referred to as Abu-Zubayr, and that the ordnance definitely hit a meeting of Shebab chiefs.

But he said it was unclear if Godane, listed by the US State Department as one of the world's eight top terror fugitives, had been killed.
