Two KDF soldiers killed, 4 injured in Somalia attack
At least two Kenyan defense force (KDF) soldiers were killed, and four others wounded in a bomb blast near El Wak town in Gedo province, south-west of Somalia on Wednesday.
The attack occurred at Burta-Mangete, a small locality located in the outskirts of El Wak city when a remote-controlled landmine struck a military convoy carrying Kenyan forces.
The KDF convoy was transporting a military supply to Kenyan army base at Buzar area, near Somali-Kenyan border at the time of the roadside bomb attack, according to locals.
Reports indicated that they were casualties among KDF soldiers as a result of the attack, however, neither Al Shabaab group nor Kenya has commented on the land mine blast.
Kenyan forces in Somalia who are serving with African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) have crossed into the horn of Africa country in Oct, 2011 to fight Al shabaab militants.
