Tens of Al Shabaab militants killed in a foiled attack

Tens of Al Shabaab militia have been killed outside dobley area in a foiled attack targeting Kenya Defence Forces. The militia group attempted to detonate Remote Controlled Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (RCVBIED) to hit KDF troops who were out on patrol in the area.

The RCVBIEDs also known as car bomb were destroyed and no serious injuries were reported on the KDF forces. The foiled attack is among other curbed attacks by troops deployed in Somalia.

This comes as AMISOM troops disposed over 75 kilos of unexploded ordnance captured from Al Shabaab militants at a safe place. Landmines and explosive remnants of war pose a serious threat to the local communities.
