Wednesday July 27, 2022

Mogadishu (HOL) - At least three Kenyan police officers were injured on Monday after al Shabaab fighters attacked a security camp in the border region of Mandera.

Northeastern Regional Police Commander George Seda said Tuesday the officers were injured at the El-Ram Anti-Stock Theft Unit camp at about 2 a.m. in the Kutulo area.

He added that the officers repulsed the attackers, who reportedly escaped toward the Kenya-Somalia border.

Al Shabaab did not comment on the attack.

Kenyan police have heightened security in the country ahead of the general elections slated for Aug. 9.

The August poll is set to be tightly contested between major political alliances -- Kenya Kwanza, headed by Deputy President William Ruto, and Azimio la Umoja, led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
