Garissa - A UN vehicle from northern Kenya's Dadaab refugee complex was hijacked by suspected Somali Al- Shabaab militants and taken to Somalia early Wednesday, a government official said.
Fafi District Commissioner Geoffrey Taragon told Xinhua by phone that three militants fired at the driver of the Nissan patrol vehicle at 08:30 a.m. local time, seriously injuring him before hijacking the vehicle and crossed over with it to Somalia via the porous border.
"We have confirmed that this vehicle has been hijacked and driven away to Somalia. I wish we had an air surveillance, this could have assisted us in tacking it and recovering it," said Taragon.
