The Kenya Red Cross Society will today suspend its humanitarian services in the Dadaab IFO2 East and West refugee camps after an attack on one of their ambulances. A driver and the paramedic were yesterday injured by gunmen who shot at the vehicle several times. The Society will use the day to reflect on the way forward and has asked the host community to assist in finding the perpetrators of the act.
