Mandera — One soldier is in critical condition after an explosion hit a Kenya army lorry in Mandera town last night in an attack believed to have been carried out by al-shabaab militiamen.Ten other soldiers were injured.
Military and police suspect the explosion was caused by a landmine that was strategically put there to hit the personnel. Witnesses said the explosion occurred as a lorry was ferrying the soldiers to a border point.
Those injured are expected to be airlifted to Nairobi today. There are ongoing military operations along the long and porous border Kenya/Somali.
