12 people are reported dead following an attack in Bishaaro Guest House, Mandera town in the small hours of this morning by armed gunmen suspected to be Al-Shabaab militia.

According to Mohamed Saleh, Mandera’s regional commander, the gunmen used grenades and improvised explosive devices to break into the guest house and then stormed in with guns.

The assailants, who were reportedly clad in the Kenyan army uniform are said to have escaped towards Somalia.

The attack comes barely three weeks after six people lost their lives in an attack by armed Al-Shabaab militiamen on a residential area in Mandera Town.
