Suspected terrorists raid Kenyan village, kills 2

Local police and witnesses said the victims were shot dead at close range in the dawn attack in Mararani area.

The Mogadishu restaurants targeted in Wednesday's Shabaab attack were popular with affluent, young and diaspora Somalis

“A combined team of security agents was sent to the area to pursue the killers and they are yet to communicate,’’ a police officer, who declined to be identified said.

Somali militants had intensified their assaults on the residents of Lamu and the raid had affected tourism, the local economy and movement of people in the community.

The raid had also led to the closure of some schools in the community

With the country’s general elections scheduled for Aug. 8, it is unclear if the residents of Lamu would be able to cast their votes.

About 20 people were killed in the area recently.

On Monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered that the terrorists should be killed and buried.

Kenyatta pledged to meet fire-with-fire in the war against the terrorists.

“Our citizens are losing their lives. Our security forces are losing their lives. My Principal Secretary was wounded a few days ago,” said Kenyatta, while on political campaign tour of Lamu region.

The killings had continued unabated despite a dusk-to-dawn curfew impose on the area as part of efforts to stem the attacks.
