MOGADISHU, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Fighter jets bombed the Somali town of Baardheere in the south of the Horn of Africa country on Thursday, killing at least one civilian, local residents and the al Shabaab rebel group said.

"Two fighter jets bombed the ADC stores in a suburb of the town," resident Ali Mohamud Ali told Reuters by telephone. "Al Shabaab were using these stores as a military base for the last three years."
