Kenya to 'continue fighting al-Shabab'

East African nation says it has a right to defend itself as long as Somali group threatens to attack its territory.



    Kenyan troops and Somali government forces say they have captured the key al-Shabab base of Tabda and killed 75 fighters.

    The joint offensive is in retaliation for al-Shabab raids into Kenya to kidnap westerners.

    Kenya says it has a right to defend itself and operations like these will continue for as long as al-Shabab threatens to attack its territory.
