The 5:30 am incident is reported to have been committed by Al-Shabaab who raided a military base that camps both Kenya and the U.S forces.
Four bodies have been found following the botched attack as confirmed by the Kenya Defense Forces.

“This morning at around 5:30 am an attempt was made to breach security at Manda Air Strip.
The attempted breach was successfully repulsed. Four terrorists bodies have so far been found. The airstrip is safe.”
The attack comes barely a week after U.S forces killed four Al-Shabaab militias in Somali.
They were responding to a car bomb in Mogadishu that killed 79 people and injured several others.
Attacks rising from Lamu are on the rise as bus from Mombasa was attacked at Nyongoro area by the terrorist group.
Three people lost their lives in the process as the Kenya police killed four of the attackers and capturing one in the process.
Last month ten people including police officers died when the vehicle they were in was bombed using an IED.
