Kenya says it destroys two al Shabaab camps in Somalia

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The Kenyan air force has destroyed two al Shabaab camps in Somalia, it said on Monday, in the first major military response since the Islamist group massacred students at a Kenyan university last week, Reuters reported.

Al Shabaab denied the camps were hit, saying the air force bombs fell on farmland.

Gunmen from the al Qaeda-aligned group killed 148 people on Thursday when they stormed the Garissa University College campus, some 200 km (120 miles) from the Somali border.

Jets pounded the camps in the Gedo region on the other side of the frontier on Sunday, Kenya Defence Forces spokesman David Obonyo said. The mission was part of efforts to stop fighters from those camps carrying out cross-border raids into Kenya. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/06/us-kenya-security-military-idUSKBN0MX0EA20150406" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
