U.S. condemns deadly attacks in Kenya

03 December 2014, 08:11

Washington - The White House on Tuesday denounced the deadly attacks in Kenya that left 37 people dead, pledging continuing support for the East African country in fighting terrorism.

"The United States strongly condemns yesterday's attacks in Wajir and Mandera counties in Kenya as well as other recent attacks by the terrorist group al-Shabaab targeting innocent civilians," National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement.

The attacks in Wajir and Mandera, in which 37 people were killed and 13 others injured, came less than two weeks after al- Shabaab ambushed a Nairobi-bound bus and killed 28 non-Muslim passengers.

Meehan said the United States would continue to support Kenya and other regional partners in combating "terrorism and violent extremism."

The U.S. military is helping fight al-Shabaab in neighboring Somalia, and killed a co-founder of the extremist group in an air strike in early September.
