Six people killed after gunmen attack two buses in Mandera

Security agencies are on high alert after suspected Al Shabaab militants sprayed two buses bound for the border town of Mandera killing 6 people including children and leaving several others injured. According to reports from the Northern Kenya county, the attackers ambushed the vehicles belonging to Tawakal and E-Coach bus companies between Wargadud and Elwak towns.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack which happened in the wake of police warnings asking non- residents to avoid travelling to Mandera by bus. The incident happened in the backdrop of scaled up attacks by the Al Shabaab in what is seen as retaliation for last month’s killing of Mohammed Kuno alias Gamadheere the mastermind of last year’s deadly attack on Garissa University which claimed the lives of over 142 people.
