A secretive spy plane that belongs to the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) was destroyed by terrorists during an attack on a military base in Kenya on January 5, the BBC reports. The attack on Manda Bay Airfield also killed one American military service member and two contractors. Four al-Shabaab militants were also killed. The US military said in a statement that two others from the Department of Defense were wounded. "The wounded Americans are currently in stable condition and being evacuated," the BBC quotes US military's Africa Command. The Associated Press news agency reported that two aircraft, two US helicopters and multiple vehicles were destroyed at the airstrip.
