Although reports from the area are as yet confused it seems that following the explosion police officers from  Baure camp rushed to the scene but in turn were attacked when they were they came under fire.

The police reportedly fought off the attack and then found the bodies of colleagues at the scene of the explosion.

The attack comes just a week since eight Administration Police Officers were killed in separate attacks, three in Garissa and five in Mandera.
