Kenya: Security Officers Fight Off Suspected Al-Shabaab Militants

Security forces have repulsed an attack by suspected Al-Shabaab militants at Special Forces Camp in Kutulo, Wajir County commander Stephen Ngetich has said.

Mr Ng'etich said the attackers invaded the Kenya Defence Forces' camp at around 8pm, resulting into a one and a half hours gun battle that ended with the assailants retreating.

"We are waiting for confirmation of the extent of the damage and also if there were any casualties."

Early last month, Shabaab destroyed a mast belonging to telecommunications firm Safaricom, paralysing communication.
