One policeman dies from Garissa attack wounds

26 May 2015, 18:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A policeman has been confirmed dead after succumbing to injuries sustained in an attack on police officers by Al Shabaab gunmen in Yumbis, Garissa.

Administration Police spokesman Masoud Mwinyi said Tuesday afternoon that the officer was one of the 5 transported to Nairobi from Garissa to receive specialist treatment following the attack.

" Sadly we have lost one but the others are in stable condition and we believe they will be fine," he said.

All other officers missing from the attack have been accounted for. They were said to be 13 in number.

There had earlier been confusion over the number of dead in the attack, with some report stating that upto 20 officers had been killed, a stance the government quickly rebuffed.

Last week, al Shabaab gunmen attacked Yumbis and hoisted their flag on a mosque where they held prayers before heading to another nearby village to spread propaganda.

Terror group Al Shabaab, which has carried out several attacks in Kenya in recent years to try to force Nairobi to withdraw its troops from Somalia, attacked a university in the same area last month and killed 148 people.
