Nairobi, Kenya — After a recent string of improvised explosive devices (IED) attacks along the northeastern border of Kenya with Somalia that claimed the lives of up to 20 Kenyan security personnel. The government of Kenya and local regional governors have begun a robust campaign to thwart further roadside bombings.
The al-Qaeda-linked radical Islamic terror organization known as Harakat al-Shabaab al-Muhajideen (HSM) based in southern Somalia has claimed responsibility for all of the recent IED attacks upon local Kenyan security forces in and around the frontier border town of Mandera where al-Shabaab brazenly targeted the county governor and his convoy with what may have been a ‘command-detonated’ IED. Al-Shabaab additionally targeted a local Kenyan police convoy with the very same style of IED in Liboi in what looks like a guerrilla cross-border attack.
