Three Al-Shabaab militants die from an IED explosion

Three Al-Shabaab militants are feared dead after an improvised explosive device (IED) they were planting exploded on them in Garissa.

Four others are reported to have sustained serious injuries and were taken away from the scene by a vehicle with Somalia number plates.

The militants could have been targeting peace keepers and other defense forces traveling through the route.

For a long time now, Al-Shabaab militants have been using this method to fight others with several cases being reported in parts of Lamu and Mandera.

The Kenyan government through the Ministry of Interior has also stepped up it measures to fight them including tracing and tracking some of their movements.
