Two KDF soldiers were killed after their truck run over an Improvised Explosive Device at Handaro, Holugho sub-county, Garissa county on Saturday.

The device is suspected to have been planted by al Shabaab adherents.

Three other soldiers, who tried to jump off the vehicle, were reportedly shot at close range by the suspected militias and were seriously wounded.

A police source said the troops were airlifted to Armed Forces Memorial hospital for treatment on Saturday evening.
