By Machuki Dennson

Four bodies of suspected alshabaab militants have been found after the suspects were neutralised on Sunday morning by the Kenya Defence Forces soldiers in Lamu. This was after the militants attempted to breach security into the Manda Airport in Lamu. According to the statement from KDF the attempted breach was successfully repulsed however in the process fire broke out affecting fuel tankers at the airstrip. The KDF now says the airstrip is safe and under their control. ‬‬
The Somali based alshabaab released a statement on Sunday claiming responsibility of the attack. The militants claim they managed to destroy a light aircraft and am helicopter that was at the airstrip during the attack
Following the attack Manda airstrip was immediately closed indefinitely. Aircrafts that had been scheduled to fly to and from Lamu were forced to cancel their schedules immediately.
Today’s attack is the second in 3 days in the same area. On Thursday three people were killed in a Lamu bound bus that was attacked by alshabaab militants

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

  2. Thanks for your ideas. One thing I have noticed is that banks and financial institutions know the spending habits of consumers and understand that most people max out their credit cards around the holidays. They wisely take advantage of this fact and start flooding your inbox and snail-mail box with hundreds of 0 APR credit card offers soon after the holiday season ends. Knowing that if you are like 98% of the American public, you’ll jump at the chance to consolidate credit card debt and transfer balances to 0 APR credit cards. aaaaaap https://thyroidmedi.com – best natural thyroid medication
