Raiders burn wildlife camp on Kenya's coast

08 July 2014, 21:32

Nairobi - An official says gunmen attacked a wildlife conservancy camp on the Kenyan coast and torched houses and vehicles there, days after another attack in the same area.

Bwanamkuu Bwanaheri, who works at the Lamu Conservation Trust's Milihoi camp, said Tuesday no one was injured when the attackers burned five houses Monday night. He said residents were sleeping in the bush as a precautionary measure following the recent spate of attacks.

The area is close to two previous attacks in late June in Mpeketoni that killed 65 people, and another two days ago in which 22 people were killed.

Al-Qaida-linked Al-Shabaab militants from Somalia claimed responsibility for both attacks, but the Kenyan government says they were organized by local, not international groups.
