MOGADISHU, Somalia – Two Kenyan military soldiers have been killed and
four others, some of whom is seriously injured in bomb explosion claimed by Al
Shabaab near Kenyan border town along Somalia.

The explosion ripped through an armored Kenyan personnel carrier in
Mandera, a town close to Kenyan border along Somalia, leaving two
soldiers dead.

assassination attempt on his life after bomb attack claimed by Al
Shabaab.

Olaka says four soldiers were only injured in Wednesday’s explosion.

cross-border attacks by Al Shabaab.

to deter attacks from the Somalia-based terror group of the
al-Shabaab.

The Al Qaeda inked Al Shabaab militant group has in the past attacked
residents of Mandera during the Christmas festive period killing
security agents and government officials.
