Five Kenyan paramilitary police killed in roadside bombing

Vastavam web: Five Kenyan paramilitary police were killed today when their vehicle struck a homemade landmine in Liboi, close to the eastern border with Somalia, a government official said. “It was an IED [improvised explosive device] attack and we have lost five police officers,” said Harun Kamau, deputy county commissioner in Dadaab, adding three others were injured.
