A Tucson woman says her husband was among the three Americans killed in a terror attack at a Kenya military base.

Hope Harrison confirmed in an interview with Tucson TV station KOLD 13 Monday that Dustin Harrison was among those killed Sunday by Al-Shabab extremists. The Associated Press could not immediately reach her for further comment.

Her husband was a pilot who worked as a Defense Department contractor.

Another contractor and Army Specialist Henry Mayfield Jr. of the Chicago area also died in the attack.

Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group is based in neighboring Somalia.
