Kenya Says 3 Militants Killed, 2 Officers Wounded In Attack
[RADIOSHABELLE] Kenya police say three suspected turbans were killed by border police whose vehicle was blown up by an improvised bomb.

A senior police official detailed the attack to The News Agency that Dare Not be Named but insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with media.

He said the Monday evening explosion injured two officers in the southern Kiunga area near the Somali border, and the explosives are believed to have been planted by al-Shabaab
...... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
turbans from Somalia who were targeting security units.

He also said the Death Eaters hid in the bushes around the area where the bomb went off and then ambushed the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Al-Shabaab has vowed retribution on Kenya for fighting the Death Eaters who are attempting to topple Somalia’s weak U.N.-backed government.
