File under: al-Shabaab
#1 Exact details unclear .. later reports say that one police officer was killed and one seriously wounded. It may be that the first report was wrong, or that 2 incidents occurred. This is the 2'nd attack within a week or so directed against vehicles carrying Kenyan police officers - usually on roads in northern Kenya. Al Shabbab appears to be smuggling weapons and militants thru refugee camps for Somalis located inside Kenya and on the border with Somalia. This poses a big challenge to the Kenyan Gov't - if they close the camps then a lot of innocent refugees will die. But it is almost impossible to enforce security inside these large refugee camps.
