AL SHABAB CLAIMS ATTACK ON KENYA MILITARY BASE ALSO USED BY US TROOPS
The al-Shabab extremist group said it has attacked a military base used by US and Kenyan troops in coastal Kenya.
Kenya's military says the attempted pre-dawn breach was repulsed and at least four attackers were killed.
A witness reports a plume of black smoke above the base and said residents reported a car bomb.
The US military confirms the attack at the Manda Bay airfield.
The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab is based in neighbouring Somalia and is the target of a growing number of US air strikes.Published: by Radio NewsHub
