Al Shabaab threatens more attacks in Kenya

The Somalia-based Al Qaeda-affiliated Al shabaab fighters have threatened more bloodshed in Kenya, a day after militants launched a raid on Mandera town which left 6 people dead.

Speaking to Andalus Radio, the group’s mouthpiece channel, Al shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamed Raageh said they will continue attacks in Kenya as long as KDF forces are pulled out of Somalia.

He said Al shabaab fighters killed six Christians and wounded three in Thursday’ attack on a compound in Manadera town, located in northeast of Kenya near Somali border.

Since Nairobi has sent its soldiers to Somalia in October, 2011, to fight against the militants, Al shabaab has carried out in Kenya numerous deadly attacks, including the West gate mall siege in September, 2013.

Kenyan troops who joined in the African Union mission in Somalia (AMISOM), are currently operating in Gedo and Jubba region of southern Somalia and fighting Al shabaab.
