Two Somali warlords defeated in recent fighting in the capital, Mogadishu, are reported to have fled the country.
Bashir Raghe and Muse Sudi Yalahow, both part of a coalition formed to fight an Islamist militia, were said to have left Mogadishu by boat.
The Union of Islamic Courts gained control of the capital two weeks ago after months of fierce fighting.
The lawless city had been controlled by a group of secular warlords since the government fell in 1991.
Reports suggested that the two men had boarded a US vessel off the coast of Somalia.
“Bashir Raghe and Muse Sudi took a boat and they were picked up by the US,” a senior aide to the Islamist leadership, Abdulrahman Ali Osman, told Reuters news agency.
