Militants from the Somali terror group al-Shabaab have claimed to have killed dozens of kENYAN troops during an attack on a remote military base in Somalia.
Islamist group al-Shabaab said its fighters killed dozens of Kenyan troops when they attacked a remote military base in Somalia on Friday, while Kenya’s army dismissed the report and said “scores” of militants were killed.
A spokesman for al-Shabaab, which often launches attacks on troops of the African Union’s AMISOM force, said its fighters killed at least 66 Kenyans at the base in the southern town of Kulbiyow, near the Kenyan border.
Al-Shabaab said it lost fighters but did not give numbers.
Kenyan military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Paul Njuguna denied the claim that al-Shabaab had killed dozens of soldiers but did not give any casualty figures.
