Policeman killed in Al Shabaab attack in Dadaab

30 November 2014, 10:21

Garissa - A Kenyan policeman was shot dead and another seriously wounded in a new attack by suspected Al Shabaab militants in Dadaab on Saturday, police said.

The shooting, which occurred near the Dadaab refugee camp, came a week after the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Somali rebels executed 28 civilians in Mandera.

"The attackers were on foot, and trailed the officers for about 100 metres (yards) before firing at them at a close range," regional police official Musa Yego said.

He said the attackers were thought to be Al Shabaab members or sympathisers, adding they disappeared into a refugee camp.

Last Saturday the Al Shabaab seized a bus heading from Mandera for Nairobi, executing 28 non-Muslim passengers in what they said was revenge for police raids on mosques in the troubled port of Mombasa.

Kenya has suffered a series of attacks since invading Somalia in 2011 to attack the Islamists.
