Nairobi - Capital News reports that an additional 700 police officers have been deployed to Garissa and its environs to curb insecurity threats posed by Al Shabaab militants.
Acting Internal Security Minister Yusuf Haji says the officers from the regular and administration police will work jointly with reservists in intensifying security patrols in the border region.
Garissa has lately become the worst hit region by terrorists in the country after Sunday’s twin attacks at the AIC and Catholic churches which killed 17 people and wounded more than fifty others.
