United States says 2 terrorists killed in Somalia airstrike

According to press reports, a few days after the deadly attack, the authorities detained those accused, whom were subjected to a police investigation, after which they acknowledged their participation in the largest attack in the history of this country.

Several Kenyan security officers lost their lives on Tuesday, January 2, following an al Shabaab attack on the Elwak-Kotulo road in Mandera county.

"We have the ground information that suspected Al-Shabaab militant on luxury vehicle was killed by an airstrike near Bariiri area in this region on Tuesday, we can not tell who but those who carried out the strike would know him", Mohamed said.

Nation established that the lorry that was burnt was the one the GSU officers were in. He added that another team was being assembled to respond to the two attacks.

Bundotich said three of the slain officers were police reservists while the other two were administrative officers.

Buses on the Mandera-Nairobi route have since switched to Marsabit-Moyale road, which is considered safer.

Saleh said more personnel had been sent to the area in efforts to repulse the attackers who locals claim had been sighted there in the past weeks.

The attack comes less than a week after the militants attacked and burnt two police stations in Garissa county in northern Kenya.
