    Kenya bus attack: Al-Shabaab militants kill 28 non-Muslims who failed to recite Koran

    Local media have reported that around 60 people were travelling on the bus to capital city Nairobi

    Terror organisation al-Shabaab have claimed an attack that killed 28 people on a bus in Northern Kenya.

    Around 100 gunmen, who are believed to have travelled over the border in Mandera county from Somalia, took the bus off the road before separating the passengers.

    It is believed they asked travellers to recite passages from the Koran, shooting dead those who were unable to prove they were practising Muslims.


    A statement on a website linked to the extremist organisation said the attack was carried out in retaliation for security raids on mosques in the coastal city of Mombassa earlier this week.

    Kenya's Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government claimed on their official account earlier today: "Attackers camp has been destroyed by KDF using helicopters and jets, many killed, operations continue."
    The bus was travelling to the Kenyan capital Nairobi when it was stopped in the northern county that borders Somalia.

    Around 60 people were on the bus at the time of the attack, and it is thought that among the dead are Kenyan public servants – including four police officers - who were heading to the capital for the Christmas holiday.

    Mandera East deputy County Commissioner Elvis Korir said the passengers were then separated into two groups. The Somali passengers watched in horror as non-Somalis were herded away from the bus and then killed.

    al-Shabaab probably thinks that they are punishing Kenya for participating in the African joint force that has been pushing them out of territory lately.

    Many Muslims in Nairobi (even neighborhoods), ethnic tensions. Probably tense in Mombasa as well.

    Kenya initiated the "invasion" of Somalia (with the transitional government's consent) after a spat of kidnappings. The US supported the action (materials, intel and I suspect forward field hospitals). They were later joined by Ethiopia, then the East African Economic Union, then the African Union.

    Al Shabab was removed from power in Mogadishu, much of the country and eventually the largest port town. Al Shabab has been decimated by Kenya and the accompanying forces.

    Yup. Most recently they lost their last major port access, which is really going to screw their finances long term. MINUSMA has been effective, properly supported.

    The Kenyan Army's casualty and death rates have been what one would expect during a developed world invasion of the developing world. That points not only to materials and intel but medical support as well.

    Kenya has a battalion of US ranger tabs.
