A police officer has been killed following a Wednesday attack on Amuma Patrol Base in Fafi, Garissa County.

A second officer was seriously injured during the ambush which partly destroyed the base's armoury.

According to reports, heavily armed gunmen suspected to be Al Shabaab operatives opened fire at the facility and continued to fire for about 10 minutes.
