A US assassination drone attack has killed at least 25 civilians and injured several others in southern Somalia, Press TV reports.

The US drone carried out attacks Thursday morning near Afmadow city in southern Somalia, leaving 25 people dead and 50 others wounded.

The US has expanded the number of its aerial terror attacks by unmanned remote-controlled aircraft in Somalia. Many civilians have fallen victim to the unsanctioned assaults as a result.

Somalia has become the sixth country where the US military has engaged in unauthorized aerial bombing campaigns through the use of its remote-controlled aircraft.

The United States has also deployed its assassination drones for aerial attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.

Washington claims the assassination airstrikes target anti-American militants, though most of such attacks have mainly resulted in civilian casualties.
