12 killed in northeast Kenya bomb attack
A bomb blast at a guesthouse in northeast Kenya killed at least 12 people yesterday, the same area hit earlier this month by Shabaab militants, police said. “We have found 12 bodies so far,” a senior police officer said. Eleven men and one woman were killed in the blast at Bishar Guesthouse, a police source said. This is the second attack in Mandera in under a month – the previous one on October 6 was claimed by the al-Qaeda-linked Shabaab group.
