WASHINGTON — A U.S. drone attacked a vehicle in southern Somalia on Monday and killed a senior member of al-Shabab, the militant group that claimed responsibility for the deadly assault on a shopping mall in Kenya last month, a U.S. official said.

The drone attack is believed to have killed two men riding in the car, including Ibrahim Ali Abdi, a Somali the U.S. official described as an explosives expert who had helped carry out suicide attacks and bombings against a United Nations facility, embassies and other targets in Somalia since 2008.
