At least two senior commanders of Islamist militant group al-Shabab have been killed in a drone strike in south-west Somalia, residents say.
Several loud blasts were heard in Bardere town at dawn and the bodies were found later, they said.
There has been no official confirmation from the al-Qaeda-linked group, but a source told a BBC reporter the dead men were al-Shabab commanders.
Bardere is one of the few towns still controlled by al-Shabab.
African Union and Somali government troops are reported to be advancing on the area.
The US has killed several senior members of al-Shabab in drone strikes.
