Bodies of Mandera attack victims airlifted to Nairobi for burial

07 October 2016, 12:39 Ben Wangui

Nairobi - Bodies of the six people killed by Al Shabaab militants in Mandera Thursday have been airlifted to Nairobi for burial.

The six were in a group of 33 others who were staying at residential plot in Bulla public works.

They were ambushed at around 2am while still in their sleep.

Area Governor Ali Roba thanked police for their fast response that saw 27 others rescued from the plot.

“Thanks to the timely response by our security teams, 27 out of 33 occupants of a plot were saved unhurt. Sadly 6 lives are too many to lose,” he said.

Two more people who sustained injuries are still recuperating at the Mandera Referral Hospital.

North Eastern Regional Coordinator Ambassador Mohamud Saleh said the Kenyan security team was working closely with the Somali National Army and the Bula Hawa administration to ensure the perpetrators of the attack were brought to book.

The administrator said investigations into the incident have started and the security officers were looking at various leads to assist in nabbing the culprits.
