Kenyan authorities said that their defence forces killed 20 Al-Shabaab militiamen near the border town of Hulugho, Garissa. This is according to MoFA.
There was a four hour exchange of fire between the group and units of the Kenyan Defence Forces which suffered no casualties.
The group are believed to be part of the force of nearly 40 who attacked an administration police camp last Friday evening killing four Police Officers.
Following the attack, the Defence Forces and other security forces launched a massive search for those responsible.
The local authorities say security forces are also tracking another splinter group of al Shabaab which has been spotted close to the border.
