Tuesday June 4, 2019-Al-Shabaab militants on Monday attacked Kenya Police officers at a small town of Dawaduba in Fino location, Mandera County at the eve of Idd-ul-fitr.

Heavy fighting was reported with police waging a spirited fight to foil an attack that would have after all been the worst against Kenyan authorities in the recent past.

According to the Voice of America, several casualties were reported on either side. A Kenyan police officer was confirmed dead while several militants are also said to have died.

"Reports of clash between Kenya police and Al-Shabaab militants in the vicinity of Dawaduba in Mandera County on Monday; casualties have been reported on both sides," Harun Maruf, the journalist of VOA tweeted.

Apparently, the attack comes just a week after the militants were crashed by Kenya Defense Forces troops at Afmadow Town across the border, when they attempted to run over a military base.

"Suspected Al-Shabaab militants fired on Kenya military base in Afmadow, Somalia, in the early hours of Thursday. Troops reportedly responded with heavy fire, forcing militants to retreat. Casualties not known," it was reported.
