They stopped thinking that the “women” needed assistance when a fierce shootout ensued.

A night guard who was at a nearby primary school was shot by a stray bullet during the crossfire and bled to death.

The gunmen later escaped towards the Kenya- Somalia border.

This latest incident comes barely after another attack in Mandera town where six people were killed by the Al Shabaab in a residential plot.

Security was heightened in the town after Al-Shabaab militants overran a Somali military camp near the Kenyan border.
