Al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for an attack on a bus in northern Kenya, the worst attack since its leader was killed in a U.S. airstrike back in September.
The attack, which killed 28 people has highlighted the continued threat the terrorist group poses, especially in the country's north, where the government has less military presence, and the country borders Al-Shabab's native Somalia. (Video via Channel 4)
Analysts say the group is trying to foment a religious war in Kenya, calling Saturday's attack retribution for a major raid Kenyan authorities carried out on a handful of mosques in Mombasa, in which they recovered dozens of weapons. (Video via eNCA News)
