more than sixty people in somalia the military says all of. the armed groups. the pentagon says the attacks over the weekend. were in coordination with somalia's federal government a somali intelligence official told media that military vehicles and a camp for hate patty cohen has this update from washington the u.s. military not giving out a ton of details but they do say that on december fifteenth air strikes were launched at about forty kilometers southwest of the capital mogadishu and that thirty four fighters were killed airstrikes the following day on the sixteenth killed another twenty eight fighters for al shabaab the u.s. military says they don't believe any civilians were killed or injured in the bombing campaign these are to press is reporting that sources inside the somali government say that the reason for the attack was they believed al shabaab was about to launch an attack on a somali government military facility so the air strikes were called in we've seen

3:09 am
been studied in the first comprehensive analysis provided by someone other than the social media companies themselves alan fischer reports in washington. if you can think of a social media platform there's a strong chance the russians used it to try to influence the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election from you tube facebook and twitter to read it and instagram and more to reports commissioned by the u.s. senate intelligence committee says russia's internet research agency or i r e try to capitalize on divisions in u.s. politics it pushed more than ten million tweets more than one thousand you tube videos and their own one hundred sixteen thousand instagram posts all together that translated into a potential of reaching more than one hundred forty million people. one of the reports concluded what is clear all of the messaging clearly sought to benefit the republican party and specifically donald trump but one expert says it's not clear
3:10 am
if just pushing the message had any impact the russian certainly tried to interfere in american elections and continue to try and interfere in american politics are they actually making a difference it's not clear what they're doing legal in some of the more indictments of shown certainly not but it's really important thing to separate out affective mess from legality and morality right these are all survive different issues and difference of stakes a place reports say that the russians push conservatives on key issues like gun rights and immigration while sending misinformation to largely democratic supporting african-american voters are doing them to boycott elections and they support u.s. intelligence reports of russian interference and the action of special counsel robert miller who's investigating possible russian collusion in the election to indict a number of russian hackers and officials president donald trump has both criticized possible russian interference and described it also as a hoax president putin he just said it's not russian except our intelligence
3:11 am
community his conclusion that russia is meddling in the two thousand and six election took place the reports also criticized the tech firms who provided data to the investigators saying that they seem to provide no more than the minimum information required and will add to pressure on those firms to do more to prevent election interference the report does not cover any potential action in the recent mid-term elections the committee's leading democrat mark warner says it's time to get serious in addressing the challenge of interference and he hopes there could be legislative action to follow alan fischer al-jazeera washington. aina fried is the chief technology correspondent at x. news website she says it would be difficult for social media companies to completely stop their platforms from being manipulated even if you spotted it is fake and facebook and twitter spot millions of fake accounts every day it's so easy
3:12 am
to set up a new one so you know it's kind of there's this american game whack a mole you're constantly you know you're doing one thing and another one's popping up a little bit out of this is like in obviously the techniques don't stay the same just as the platforms and governments are getting better at spotting it russia and others that are looking interfere developing new techniques themselves there's a couple of areas where the platforms are faulted in these reports that are faulted not only for missing it obviously in two thousand and sixteen but also providing just the minimal information to investigators and that's a serious issue obviously if we're going to try and stop this in the future we need all the information possible next we're going to has taken all the bits that it identified as potentially coming from russia's internet research agency and made those available to researchers that is a step they can be both in seeing how they operate and potentially spotting trends to prevent future it's. still ahead on the program thousands rally in chardon ca in
