NAIROBI: Suspected Al-Shabaab Islamists killed three teachers and kidnapped another at a primary school in eastern Kenya on Monday, police said, the latest in a spate of attacks in the region.
The assailants also torched a police post and damaged a telecoms mast in the attack in Kamuthe, 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of the town of Garissa.
At around 2 am (2300 GMT Sunday) “suspected armed AS Militia attacked Kamuthe primary school, Kamuthe Police Post, a telecommunications mast and murdered 3 teachers”, a police statement said.
“The telecommunications mast is partially damaged but operational.” A separate police report on the incidents seen by AFP said the three teachers killed were not from the region, and that a local teacher was abducted. The assailants spared a nurse as she was a woman.
