Armed gang attacks police station in Garissa

Several police officers have been reported missing following a raid on Bodhai police station in Garissa by an armed gang on Monday.

The gang attacked the station which is near the border with Lamu and burnt down a police car.

The motive of the attack is still unclear but initial investigations are linking it to the Al-Shabaab militia.

The Somalia based militia has been blamed for recent attacks in the region that have left more than 100 people dead, displaced hundreds of families and destroyed property.
