Three Kenyan police officers killed in Al-Shabaab attack

MANDERA, Kenya – The Somalia-based Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Shabaab group says it killed at least three Kenyan police officers during an attack in the border town of Mandera on Tuesday.

The attack at a bus station in the Olla area north of Mandera sparked a gunfight between the terrorists and the Kenyan security forces that lasted for several hours as the two sides exchanged heavy weapons.

The independent sources confirmed to Keydmedia English that an Imam of a mosque was killed and two policemen were wounded in the attack which comes as Kenya amasses extra troops at the Somalia border.

Moalim Abdullahi, the mosque Imam caught in the fire as he walked through the street, heading to his house, according to the local residents who were in shock and panic over his death.

In a statement, Al-Shabaab said its fighters have seized five guns from the Kenyan soldiers killed and injured in the battle and took control of the area briefly and left before KDF reinforcements arrived.

Kenyan’s military didn’t comment on the attack and Al-Shabaab claims.

The East African country has suffered lost hundreds of people in deadly Al-Shabaab attacks in revenge for sending combat troops to Somalia in 2011, who are currently serving under the African Union mission [AMISOM].
