Seven Kenyan soldiers die in Somalia roadside blast

Seven Kenyan soldiers who were part of the African Union peacekeeping force in Somalia have been killed in a roadside blast near the Somali border town of Dhobley, an official said.

The soldiers died after an improvised explosive device hit their military vehicle which was in an army convoy on patrol.


A Somali military official who sought anonymity said he saw the bodies of seven Kenyan troops at the scene of the attack. Two others sustained serious injuries, he said.

“The IED tore apart the vehicle, killing the soldiers instantly,” a security source told the Nairobi-based Capital FM news outlet.

Al-Shabab said it was behind the blast. Kenyan military officials were not available for comment at the time of publishing this story.

A week ago, a similar number of Somali government soldiers were killed near Dhobley in an attack on their military vehicle.

Meanwhile, the US embassy in Kenya has issued “a security alert”, warning that “extremists may use the upcoming relocation of the US embassy in Israel to target US citizens”.

It warned that the areas that may be targeted include bus parks, matatu (bus) termini.

  3. If you ever tried Phallomax, please drop your thoughts below. Im about to try it out. Have read about this remedy some good reviews. Just wondering on how many more cm would this product add to my little Woody down there lol 😛

  4. Awesome post. Btw did you try this product: Looks like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. Did come across it just now and decided I’ll test it out just to see how good it is. Have found some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not all products out there have so many positive opinions. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).

  7. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  8. Ernest Quintana, 78, was at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont when a doctor – appearing on the robot’s screen – informed him that he would die within a few days.

    A family friend wrote on social media that it was “not the way to show value and compassion to a patient“.

    The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

    Mr Quintana died the next day.
