AFTERMATH: Bodies of slain Al-Shabaab soldiers lined up at Manda Bay airfield following Sunday’s botched attack

This afternoon, five suspects, thought to be part of or linked to the Lamu military base attack, were arrested soon after Al Shabaab terrorists launched a deadly attack that left aircraft and vehicles destroyed, both for the Kenyan and US forces operating from there.

Kenya Defence Forces said an attempt was made at approximately 5:30 a.m. this morning to breach security at Manda Air Strip and that it had successfully been stopped and the airstrip was safe.

Four terrorist bodies were found by a joint military manhunt staged by the KDF and their American counterparts, but there was no immediate confirmation if they were killed or blew themselves up.

Photos circulated online showed thick black smoke billowing from the airstrip on Sunday morning, in what Col Njuguna said was “fire that broke out affecting some of the fuel tanks located at the airstrip.”

Armed terrorists invaded the Magogoni-Naval base in Lamu County on Sunday morning.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement, saying they had successfully stormed the heavily fortified military base and have now taken effective control of part of the base.

Hours after gunfire died down, photos of what is believed to be the aftermath of today’s incident have now surfaced online.

Multiple social media accounts have shared images of some of the Al-Shabaab militants killed in today’s retaliatory attack lined up at the Magogoni-Naval base in Lamu County.

As of 6 p.m this evening, soldiers had completed the first phase of the operation
with a preliminary assessment report from the team confirming the killing of eight Al- Shabaab terrorists who were in camouflage and the recovery of 2 RPGs, 1 PKM and 4 AK 47s.

Among those killed was Abu Hamza al-Kinyi 13 who was found 13 kilometres deep inside the Boni Forest. He is a Kenyan who acted as the Commander in today’s attack joined the terrorists group in 2013.

Here are the [graphic] photos and their sources below.
