Six persons have been reported dead as a result of an Al-Shabaab attack in the Widhu Majembeni Area of Lamu County, on the Kenyan coast.
In addition, numerous homes were set ablaze by the accused extremists during the early-morning event on Monday.
The terrorist invaded the village, according to the police, and killed one man by shooting him in the head and another by cutting him to death with a machete.
They went ahead and set fire to people’s homes while they were sleeping, resulting in the deaths of four individuals in total.
The raid comes a year after radicals launched an attack on the Kenya Navy installation in Manda Bay, which also serves as a base for US Marine Corps personnel.
A terrorist attack against Manda Bay’s airfield was launched with a specific target in mind: American military planes. In an attack on the US aircraft parked at the base, the extremist group utilized rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) that were in their possession to bring down the aircraft and kill the crew members.
The attack resulted in the deaths of four of them.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
