Suspected Al Shabaab Attack Leaves Two Dead

Reports have emerged of an attack in Garissa’s border town of Fafi from where some two civilians are feared dead.

This comes just four days after President Uhuru Kenyatta commissioned the newest barracks in the North-Eastern town to curb frequent attacks by the militants.

The new Modika barracks will be home to some three fighting units of the army and another three sub-units.

This followed another major attack in December 3 where at least 11 non-locals were separated from a Medina bus and executed in cold blood.

While intelligence reports linked the deaths to a passenger inside the report, the militants managed to flee to neighbouring Somalia.

President Kenyatta mourned the slain citizens, saying most of the dead were police officers heading back for duty.

Kenya has borne the brunt of terrorist attacks since it joined an all-out incursion into Somalia in 2011.

The biggest attack came in 2015 when over 150 students at the Garissa University were killed in a brazen attack that made international headlines.
