Kenya school attacked by al-Shabab, several students killed

Suspected al-Shabab fighters attacked a primary school in Garissa county near the border with Somalia.

At least four students have been killed by suspected fighters from the armed group al-Shabab at a school in northern Kenya.

It comes as the United States boosts its military presence in the country, deploying additional soldiers to the Manda Bay airbase after al-Shabab staged an attack there on Sunday.
