Four travellers killed by an explosive in Kenya
Four people died in Kenya on Wednesday morning when their vehicle drove over an improvised explosive device suspected to have been planted by al-Shabaab militants.
Northeastern Kenya has been a hotbed of terrorism since 2011, when the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) moved into Somalia to fight the al-Shabaab insurgents. The terrorists are known to carry out bombings inside Kenya and kidnap tourists along the coastal region.
A church leader in Mandera explained that the main targets of these vehicle attacks are Christians who have relocated from other parts of the country for work.
