Somalia: Kerry - "U.S Will Never Stop the Effort to Hold Those Accountable Who Conduct Acts of Terror"

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that a pair of U.S. military raids against militants in north Africa sends the message that terrorists "can run but they can't hide."

"We hope that this makes clear that the United States of America will never stop in the effort to hold those accountable who conduct acts of terror," Kerry said. "Members of al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations literally can run but they can't hide."

Kerry vowed the United States would "continue to try to bring people to justice in an appropriate way with hopes that ultimately these kinds of activities against everybody in the world will stop."

American troops assisted by FBI and CIA agents seized a suspected leader of Al Qaeda on the streets of Tripoli, the capital of Libya, while the Navy SEAL raided the seaside villa of a militant leader in a predawn firefight on the coast of Somalia.
