Death toll four in attack on Governor Roba's convoy

14 March 2015, 17:19

Isiolo - An attack by suspected Al Shabaab gunmen on a convoy of Mandera County Governor Ali Roba killed three police officers and a regional elder, a regional official said on Saturday.

Gunmen attacked the convoy of Ali Roba, on Friday. That region is often targeted by members of the militant al Shabaab group from neighbouring Somalia.

Al Shabaab said on Friday it carried out an attack in the area against a military convoy and said four soldiers were killed. The army said only the governor's convoy was attacked, not any military ones, but gave no precise death toll.

Mandera County Commissioner Alex Nkoyo said on Saturday that three police officers and a regional elder were killed.

Al Shabaab has launched many attacks inside Kenya, saying it will continue until Kenyan forces are withdrawn from Somalia, where they are fighting alongside other African forces against the militant group.
