The Kenya Defense Forces recovered about 17 AK47 riffles, five rocket propelled grenades and other assorted ammunition in a clash that left 21 al-shabaab militants dead.

Among those killed is a junior-level commander, Salad Bart who is believed to be in charge of the militia troop.

In a statement issued by KDF Spokesman Col David Obonyo, KDF troops were traveling from Dobley to Hawina at 8.23am when a lone al-shabaab militant shot at them and fled the scene. The troops then started patrolling the area before engaging the militants who were planning an ambush along the road to Tabda.
