Al Shabaab kills four police officers, injures five in Mandera bus ambush

Four police officers were killed on Monday after suspected al Shabaab militants attacked their vehicle using a rocket-propelled grenade.

Five officers were injured in the incident in Dabasity, Mandera county, that took place while they escorted a Makkah bus.

Northeastern regional coordinator Mahmoud Saleh told the Star the car the officers were travelling in was destroyed. He said the passengers in the bus were safe.

Governor Ali Roba condemned the attack saying locals shared information about a possible attack but were not taken seriously.

“It is sad that the information had long been shared by locals,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
