A suspected Al Shabaab militant was on Thursday evening shot dead outside the United States Embassy in Gigiri, Nairobi.

Reports indicate that the man of Somali origin attempted to stab a General Service Unit officer who was manning the entrance of the compound before he was gunned down.

The government on Thursday announced a 60-day dusk to dawn curfew in the northeastern town of Mandera, hit by two deadly terrorist attacks in three weeks.

Interior minister Joseph Nkaissery issued the order two days after Shabaab militants killed 12 people at a hotel in Mandera town on Tuesday.
