Buhari in Kenya as country honours troops killed in Somalia

27 January 2016, 22:26

Nairobi — Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta leads an interfaith memorial service honoring Kenyan soldiers killed while on peacekeeping duty in Somalia.

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria and Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud attended the event Wednesday at a military barracks in Eldoret.

In Nigeria Buhari faces the Boko Haram extremist insurgency while Mohamud's government in Somalia relies on foreign troops to protect against the Islamic extremists al-Shabab.

Al-Shabab claims it killed about 100 Kenyan peacekeepers stationed in southern Somalia on January 15. Kenyan officials have not given a death toll, and it is unclear how many Kenyan peacekeepers have been killed or wounded in Somalia since they deployed in 2011.

Before the ceremony started, relatives of the victims were seen being counselled as some broke down in tears.
