A report from Nairobi said that six people were killed on Friday when gunmen sprayed two passenger buses with bullets in north-eastern Kenya.

The attack which was attributed to the Somali Islamist group al-Shabaab, occurred between Elwak and Wargadud in Mandera County.

It disclosed that a police reservist who was on board to escort the passengers was among those killed, while another reservist was injured.

They warned that due to the security threat posed by al-Shabaab, non-locals living in the county would not be allowed to travel by bus until the end of Ramadan.
