GARISSA—At least two Al-Shabab logisticians were killed on Tuesday when a bomb they were assembling exploded at Amuma area, Garissa county.
The police said the two were planting the improvised explosive device on the main supply route used by security agencies and other motorists when it went off. The police said in a report that the security teams that responded to the scene found the badly mutilated bodies sprawled all over the place.
The police said this indicates the terrorists are now attempting to deploy the explosives after a slight decline in attacks in September.
