The bus carrying around 60 passengers was en route for Nairobi when it was ambushed in Mandera County on Saturday morning.

In a statement on a website linked to the Islamist group, a spokesperson for al-Shabaab said that the attack was carried out in retaliation for security raids in mosques in Mombasa in the last week.
