Nairobi: A military base has emerged in Kenya amidst ongoing tension between Iran and the US. This military base is also used by the US Army.

Kenya Defense Force (KDF) said, at 5.30 am today, an attempt was made to break the security cordon at Manda Ayes Streep but was thwarted.

KDF said that four bodies of the terrorists have been recovered so far. The air strip is now safe. KDF said that arson caused by some oil tankers being damaged due to an attempt to break the security cordon has also been controlled.

The Manda Air strip is located in Lamu County, which borders Somalia. The strip is used jointly by the US and Kenyan forces.

This is the second attack by Al Shabaab in this area in recent times. On January 2, a passenger bus was attacked in which three passengers were killed while three were injured.

On 15 January last year, Alshabab attacked a hotel in Nairobi in which 21 people were killed. The same group claimed responsibility for the trunk bomb blast in Mogadishu on 28 December, in which 85 people died and 140 people were injured.
