Al Shabab militia have reportedly attacked Girile Somalia near the boarder of Somali and Kenya killing seven Kenyans. According to sources privy of the incident, the attack was launched on Friday morning at around 5 am. The Al Shabab militia attacked a borehole drilling company on that morning killing the workers.
Sources indicates that the 3 locals who passed away were laid to rest in accordance to Muslim laws and burial rites. Immediately after the Al Shabab militia attacked the region, Kenya Defence Forces officers arrived at the scene and retrieved the bodies back into the country.
