    Kenya: Bus Passengers killed in ambush

    Dec 21, Nairobi: Ambush on a passenger bus in Kenya’s northeast near the border with Somalia killed two people on Sunday.

    Official and residents said that the bus was believed to be carrying more than 50 passengers when it was attacked between Kutulo and Daba village in Mandera County.

    Mohamud Saleh, the chief administrator of Kenya's northeastern region said that the attackers tried to wave the bus down but then sprayed it with bullets when the driver refused to stop.

    It is not yet clear who is behind the assault, but I'm not ruling out that this was a case of banditry, news reports said.

    In November 2014, armed group al-Shabab killed 28 Kenyan non-Muslim bus passengers in Mandera county, in what it said was revenge for Kenyan police raids on Mombasa mosques.
