Al-Shabaab terrorists strikes again


Al Shabaab the terrorist group in Somalia that has caused many deaths in Somalia, Kenya and its environs has struck again.


A suicide attacker from the terrorist group rammed a military base with a suicide truck bomb, shot dead an intelligence officer and killed 12 people in a Kenyan border town.

The group, which once ruled much of Somalia, wants to topple the Western-backed government in Mogadishu. It also planned to drive out African AMISOM peacekeepers made up of soldiers from Kenya, Djibouti, Uganda, Ethiopia and other African nations.

The attacks comes as the upcoming elections are near for the Somali parliament, which will in turn pick a new president to continue slow reconstruction efforts in a nation racked by more than two decades of conflict.

Punch gathered that AMISOM has been battling the rebels for peacekeeping in support of the government. They swiftly brought the incident under control.

The group's  spokesman also said the group shot senior intelligence officer, Colonel Abdiasis Araye, as he walked to a mosque late on Monday.
