KENYA: ‘ AL-SHABAB MILITANTS HIJACK A BUS & KILL 28 NON-MUSLIMS ON BOARD ‘

#AceWorldNews – KENYA – Nov.22 – Authorities say al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants from Somalia have hijacked a bus in northern Kenya and killed 28 non-Muslims on board.

Two police officers, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the bus was hijacked 50 kilometres (31 miles) from the town of Mandera on its way to the capital Nairobi, AP reported.

Kenya has witnessed a rise in attacks by al-Shabab militants since it sent troops into Somalia in October 2011.

There have been over 100 attacks since then, including the 2013 Westgate Mall massacre that left 67 people dead.
