Heavy gunfire in Mandera town as police battle terrorists

A fierce gun battle ensued in Mandera town after al-Shabaab gunmen engaged police officers in the border town. The fight has spilled over to Bulla Hawo in Somalia as the terrorists continue to cause tension in the region. Mandera County Commissioner Frederick Shisia has confirmed the incident and said that police were on high alert.

Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers have already arrived at the border to beef up security with more Somali government troops sent to Bulla Hawo to flush out the militants. Residents in Bulla Hawo now say Al-Shabab militants left the town after Kenya military bombardment. Al-Shabaab fighters have been launching attacks in Kenya claiming lives of many including police officers.
