Islamists attack Kenyan coastal town, kill 48

  


At least 48 people have died after terrorists attacked Kenya’s coastal town of Mpeketoni, the regional Red Cross branch reported on Monday.

On Sunday, the town on the Indian Ocean coast was attacked by suspected militants from al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda affiliated group from Somalia. Around 50 gunmen assaulted various locations across the town. Several buildings have been destroyed, including government offices, hotels, restaurants, and banks. The terrorists also tried to seize a police station and its weapons caches, but their attack was repelled.

Earlier, al-Shabaab repeatedly threatened to attack the US, Kenya and Uganda. One of the group’s senior commanders Fuad Shangole said al-Shabaab would carry its jihad to Kenya, Uganda, “and afterward, with God’s will, to America.”
