Unknown number of KDF soldiers are feared dead after an attack in Lamu county.

According to authorities, their vehicle rammed into an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) mounted underground at Baure area within Lamu.

Though Lamu County Commissioner Irungu Macharia confirmed the incident, he said security agencies could not immediately establish the number of injuries or deaths following disruption of communication in the area.

However, Mr. Macharia said security agencies are pursuing the attackers by employing both on ground and on air machinery.

“We cannot directly reveal the number of the injured KDF officers or even those who succumbed due to poor communication,” noted Mr. Macharia.
