KDF troops on Wednesday killed three al Shabaab militants within Boni Forest and recovered weapons from them.
Spokesman David Obonyo said in a statement that one other fighter was killed by a IED that exploded prematurely as he tried to plant it on Sarira-Kolbio road.
He said they found the militant’s body approximately 3 km from Sarira after the 3am blast. Obonyo said the troops were later ambushed by another group of fighters leading to the death of the three in an ensuing exchange of fire.
There were no casualties on the KDF side.
