Mandera - Two police police officers were killed by gunmen who raided a police post in Mandera on Thursday.
The attack comes just after the bloody four-day standoff at the Westgate Mall that ended Tuesday in which at least 67 people were killed.
Al-Shabaab threatened in a message late Wednesday that if Kenyan troops remain in Somalia, Kenyans must "be prepared for an abundance of blood."
Regional police chief Charlton Mureithi says the militants' attack in the town of Mandera also resulted in three police officers injured and 11 vehicles destroyed.
Wednesday night, militants attacked the border town of Wajir. One person was killed and four wounded after a gunman opened fire and threw grenades.
