Failed bus attack in Kenya ‘linked to IS faction of al-Shabab’
Joseph Boinnet who is a Kenyan police chief, has said al-Shabab militants behind this week’s thwarted bus attack were linked to the Islamic State (IS) group.
Mr Boinnet said al-Shabab, the Somalia-based Islamist group, had split in two – one faction remaining loyal to al-Qaeda and the other to IS.
On Monday, Muslims protected fellow Christian passengers when their bus was ambushed near the Somali border.
In April 148 people died in a single al-Shabab attack in Kenya.
The actions of the passengers on the bus on its way from the capital, Nairobi, to Mandera, were widely hailed, with one local politician saying it showed “a sense of patriotism and belonging to each other”.
