'al-Shabaab' militants attack police camp in Northern Kenya

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Dozens of Al-Shabaab militants attacked two police camps in Ijara Center located in northeastern Kenyan county of Garissa on Saturday dawn and disappeared with a land cruiser.

The heavily armed fighters from the Al-Qaida linked terrorist group stormed the Kenya police service and administration police camps and engaged in a fierce gun battle with about 40 security officers.

However, no casualties were reported during the gun battle between Al-Shabaab militants and Kenyan security personnel.

The militants razed down the two police camps, broke into a shop and hit a Safaricom mast using an explosive and later disappeared with a police Land Cruiser.

Sources told reporters that Al-Shabaab militants had earlier been spotted roaming around Ijara centre which is near the Kenya-Somalia border before launching attack on police camps.

The latest Al-Shabaab attack came against a backdrop of enhanced vigilance by Kenyan security forces during the festive season.
