Two Police officers killed in Mandera ambush

27, Dec 2015

Well, this comes as two police officers were this morning killed and two others injured in an ambush by suspected al Shabaab terrorists. The incident occurred along Lafey- el wak road, Mandera County. The incident comes barely two days after a similar attack in which two Kenyan police convoys were attacked in northern Kenya killing at least one police officer. The al Shabaab group, which seeks to overthrow Somalia’s western-backed government and impose a strict version of sharia law, has carried out regular assaults in neighbouring Kenya in retaliation for Kenya’s contributing troops to an African union peacekeeping force in Somalia.
