Al-Shabab ‘kills Christians’ in Kenya’s Mandera town

Militant Islamist group al-Shabab says it has killed six Christians in north-eastern Kenya in an attack aimed at forcing them out of the region.

The grenade and gun attack was launched on a residential block in Mandera town when people were sleeping, police said.

It was the latest in a spate of deadly attacks targeting Christians in the mainly Muslim region.

In December 2014, al-Shabab killed 38 non-Muslims at a quarry after separating them from Muslim workers.

A few months earlier, 28 people were killed after Muslim passengers were split up from the other passengers.
