Kenya: At least six killed in al-Shabab raid on border town

At least six Kenyans were killed Friday when al-Shabab terrorists attacked a border town, Xinhua news agency reported yesterday.

According to the police report, one person sustained a serious bullet wound when the militants launched the attack in Dhobley town in Garissa County near the Kenya-Somalia border.

The victims, Kenyans from the Meru region, were targeted because of their perceived religious affiliations during the morning attack, local authorities said.

The al-Shabab group sought to assert its authority along the border region between Kenya and Somalia. Police have increased their operations in the area, thwarting dozens of planned attacks.
