"News inn: Several people feared dead after Bus Hits IED in Mandera -Arabia Road," the source said.
This is not the first attack Al-Shabaab is launching against Kenya in recent days. Several attacks have been reported particularly in the North-Eastern region of the country.
While some of the attacks were thwarted by Kenya's security forces, some attacks left behind casualties, including the death of a government official, a chief, whose head was chopped off by the terrorists.
Furthermore, Mandera governor Ali Roba alleged that the militia group had taken over some parts of the county. He recently noted that Al-Shabaab controls at least 50 per cent of the county.
However, his allegations were refuted by the government.
