Three killed as Al-Shabaab increases attacks in Kenya

MANDERA, Kenya - The Al-Qaeda ally, Al-Shabaab has increased terrorist attacks in Kenya after the East African country has sent troops to serve under the AU force fighting the group in Somalia.

A senior Kenyan police officer has confirmed that the militants have killed at least three civilians during an attack on a construction site in Mandera town on the Kenyan-Somali border on Monday.

According to local media, the extremists raided a settlement near Jabibar within Mandera county, where a road construction project was underway.

In a separate incident, Al-Shabaab set fire to a truck and kidnapped several employees working on the construction of a key highway in southern Mandera, the worst-hit town in the northeastern region.

The local police were called to the scene following the attack and launched a manhunt for the attackers who abducted the driver of the burnt truck Ali Mohamed and his colleague Kerow Aden Abdi.

The whereabouts of the missing contractors are not yet clear but some reports suggest that they have been taken into Somalia and held hostage in an undisclosed location under Al-Shabaab control.

Al-Shabaab killed 67 people at the Westgate Mall in 2013, and the second attack was on the University of Garissa in Kenya in 2015, which left over 149 students dead and Dusit D2 hotel assault Jan 15, 2019.
