, NAIROBI, Kenya June 6 – Four people were on Tuesday killed after a vehicle ran over an Improvised Explosive Device in Dadaab, Garissa County.

“We have four people dead from the incident that occurred between Dadaab and Doble,” North Eastern Regional Commissioner Mohamud Saleh said.

The NGO known as African Development Solutions-ADESO.

The incident occurred on the Dadaab-Kulan road, the latest in a series of similar attacks in northern Kenya towns bordering Somalia in recent weeks.

Kenyan security forces have come under attack from suspected Al Shabaab terrorists who often set up roadside bombs that have killed more than 20 police officers in the past two weeks alone.

The attacks follow warnings by Kenya’s Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet that Al Shabaab militants were fleeing Somalia due to the intensified military operation there, and have now resorted to launch attacks targeting security forces on the border towns.
