On the morning of February 2, a vehicle in Kenya ran over an explosive device planted by terrorist group Al-Shabab. All four occupants were killed.
The attack took place not far from Somalia, which has been a hotbed for Islamic extremism since the 1980s. Al-Shabab itself was established in 2006.
This is one of ten attacks on Kenyan soil since the year began. Nehemiah with FMI says, “The incident occurred just two days after a 14-seater vehicle, traveling in Mandera County from a place called Arabia, ran over an improvised land mine, killing 13 people and injuring scores of others now admitted in the Mandera hospital.”
In late January, the U.S. and several European embassies warned of terrorist threats in Kenya, urging their citizens to avoid public places.
