"Shabab al-Mujahedeen Movement fighters mounted a fierce attack in a military base of American and Somali forces", the report said, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group.
Al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the Saturday attack and said they killed 40 Somali soldiers.
"Names are being withheld pending next of kin notification".
The US special operations forces were fighting alongside about 800 troops from the Somali National Security Forces and Kenyan Defence Forces when they were attacked about 2:45 p.m.by mortars and small arms fire.

During a seven-month investigation into the attack, led by officials from the Pentagon's Africa Command, the Special Operations general in charge of American commandos in Africa issued a series of orders that roughly mirrored the actions in Somalia, putting in place stringent guidelines to ensure that those on the ground had the proper support before leaving on a mission.
