Al-Shabaab militants raid Kenyan police station

Al-Shabaab militia attacked a police station in Kenya’s northeastern region of Wajir on Tuesday night killing two of their members who were in custody at the facility.

According to National Police Spokesman Charles Owino, the terrorists attacked the station located 13 kilometers from Somalia border with heavy artillery including rocket-propelled grenades (RGPs).

An unidentified civilian, a woman, was also wounded in the attack. Police say her condition was unknown by Wednesday morning.

It is not yet confirmed whether the militants suffered fatalities or injuries.

Kenya Defense Forces soldiers who had camped nearby were deployed in the area in a bid to restore calm.

Wajir county borders Somalia where Al-Qaeda linked militants have been terrorizing the area to regain control after losing it to peacekeeping missions deployed there.
