Al-Qaeda Ally Not Going Away
Two deadly attacks targeting Kenyans over the last two weeks have been the responsibility of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab. The attacks have resulted in a shake-up by the Kenyan government.
According to a report by VOA News, the attacks, one on a bus that killed 28 people, and another on workers at a quarry that left 36 dead. The bus attack last week resulted in a strike by Kenyan Air Force F-5 Tiger fighter planes. Al-Shabaab has launched attacks in Kenya on a number of occasions, most notably the Westgate Mall attack in 2013 that left 69 people dead.
