Kenya says reduced Al-Shabaab threats in coast region

LAMU (Xinhua) -- Kenyan authorities on Tuesday said a multi-agency security operation in the coastal county of Lamu has improved the region’s security.

Lamu County Commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo said Al-Shabaab attacks and attempts that were being witnessed in Lamu have dropped by almost 80 percent since the start of the operation, Linda Boni, in September 2015.

“We have managed to thwart several Al-Shabaab attacks in the region,” Kitiyo said.

The operation involves officers drawn from both the military and the police. Its major objective is to flush out Al-Shabaab from the Boni forest, which militants use as their hideout when they mount attacks.
