Random Pagan Verse:
It has always been the way of men and women that they should seek after love, and while no one should be reproved for this, it may be to the disadvantage of the Craft sometimes. It has happened too many times that a High Priestess has found a new love and run off with him,
giving no word to the coven of this. A High Priestess may resign in full coven at any time, and this resignation is valid; but if she has not resigned, the coven shall wait for her to return for a year and a day (for she may return sooner, having left for love). If she has a deputy, that deputy
is to act as Priestess for as long as the High Priestess is away. If she returns within this time, all will be as if she had never left; but if she does not return within this time, a new High Priestess shall be elected in full coven. Unless there is a good reason to the contrary, the deputy,
having done the work, should reap the reward and be chosen as the new High Priestess. But if another is chosen, the deputy shall be the maiden and deputy of the new High Priestess.

8 Killed as US Airstrikes Target al-Shabab in Somalia

At least eight people were killed Monday and early Tuesday in U.S. airstrikes targeting al-Shabab militants in southern Somalia.

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said unmanned drones were used in the attacks.

Witnesses and officials told reporters  that five militants and three civilians were killed in the airstrikes, which hit the al-Shabab-controlled village of Yontoy in Somalia's Lower Juba region.

The Pentagon spokesman put the death toll at 12 militants. He described the airstrikes as "self-defense," saying the targets of the attack "were posing an imminent threat to U.S. personnel."

It was not immediately known whether any al-Shabab leaders were hit. A high-ranking security official in Kismayo told reporters that al-Shabab militants were seen making ?some movements? before the airstrike.

Yontoy is about 24 kilometers north of the coastal city of Kismayo. Officials suspect the village serves as a launching post for al-Shabab militants who attack Kismayo's airport with mortars.

The U.S. has repeatedly used drones to attack al-Shabab. The group's longtime leader, Ahmed Abdi Godane, was killed by a U.S. drone strike in September 2014.
