BALI, Indonesia — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says terrorists "can run but they can't hide."

Kerry, in remarks Sunday, was speaking about U.S. operations in northern Africa against terrorists factions.

In raids in Somalia and in Libya's capital, U.S. special forces on Saturday struck out against Islamic extremists who have carried out terrorist attacks in East Africa. They captured a Libyan al-Qaida leader allegedly involved in the bombings of U.S. embassies 15 years ago.

A U.S. Navy SEAL team in Somalia aborted a mission to capture a terrorist suspect linked to last month's Nairobi shopping mall attack after a fierce firefight.

Kerry, the highest-level administration to speak about the operations yet, made his comments at an event at a port for Balinese tuna fishermen. He's in Bali for an economic summit.
