Militants on Monday launched a deadly attack in Kenya’s Kamuthe area in Garissa County, killing three teachers.
Kenyan officials said the attack was carried out by Al Shabaab militants who were targeting a communication mast and a police camp in the area.
Barely a week ago, the same militants based in Somalia launched at attack that killed four pupils from Saretho Primary School in Garissa.
Previous attacks in Kenya’s North Eastern region on teachers have led to mass exodus of teachers from the region.
Al-shabab continues to launch attacks across the East African region especially in Somalia and Kenya.

Al-shabaab is linked to al-Qaeda and still has a strong presence in many rural areas in Somalia.
