Explosive Devices Against Police And Military Patrols In The Border Region Is Common

A homemade landmine has been reported to have killed five Kenyan paramilitary police on Wednesday, the police vehicle was said to have struck the landmine in Liboi, close to the eastern border with Somalia, government official revealed.

It was an IED [improvised explosive device] attack and we have lost five police officers,” said Harun Kamau, deputy county commissioner in Dadaab, adding three others were injured.

The use of improvised explosive devices against police and military patrols in the border region is relatively common. Over the past year, Shabaab insurgents, based in Somalia, have claimed several such attacks killing dozens of Kenyan police and soldiers.

Kamau said the officers from the General Service Unit were travelling in a police truck which was destroyed by the explosion.
