Somalis flee Shabaab violence

More people are streaming into Kenya after deadly attack on border town of Dhobley.

    More Somalis have begun crossing over to neighbouring Kenya after the Al Shabaab armed group attacked a border town.

    On Friday, Al Shabaab tried to seize the Somali town of Dhobley, killing at least 10 pro-government troops and wounding dozens more.

    The Kenyan military moved dozens of troops into the region to stop the fighting from spilling over the border.

    Peter Greste reports from Dhobley.
