Al Shabab attack in Garissa

At least three Kenyan students and a teacher were killed, and four more people injured when suspected al-Shabab terrorists attacked a primary school in Garissa county, near the border with Somalia. The Kenyan military says its forces killed two of the attackers as they tried to blow up a telecommunications tower.

Kenyan police say al-Shabaab terrorists attacked Saretho Primary School in a remote village in Garissa County early Tuesday morning.

Police spokesman Charles Owino provided details.

“About 12 al-Shabab attackers attacked an area called Saretho. Saretho is within Dadaab sub-county in Garissa county 25 kilometers from Dadaab center. They killed a teacher and three other persons, a total of four people.”

Owino said security officers fought off the attackers as they then tried to destroy a telecommunications tower with improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

“They attempted to destroy the telecommunication of Safaricom mast around that place.  [An] officer who was on patrol caught up with them, shot and killed two of them, and we recovered two AK-47 rifles and some IEDs they had planted at the telecommunication area,” Owino said.

Al-Shabab militants frequently launch attacks in northeastern Kenya, near the border with Somalia.
