US Secretary of State John Kerry said today that the US military raids in north Africa sends the message that terrorists "can run but they can't hide."
Speaking in Bali for an economic summit, he said: "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.
"Members of al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations literally can run but they can't hide."
He added that the US 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."
