At least ten people were killed and several others injured after Islamist extremist group, Al-Shabaab, ambushed a commuter bus in northeast Kenya on Friday evening, the police said.
Stephen Ngetich, Wajir county police commander, said the militants ambushed a Medina Bus which was traveling from Nairobi to Mandera in the northeast region and killed Christians onboard.
Ngetich said the incident took place in an area between Wargadadud and Kutulu town in Wajir County at around 5 p.m.
“I can confirm there was an attack on the bus which was en route to Mandera from Nairobi. Most of the people targeted are non-locals. We are pursuing the attackers,” Ngetich said.
