“The police are pursuing the four suspects believed to be in the Mandera/Wajir (northeastern) border areas,” Boinett said in his public alert.

He called on Kenyans to provide the information on the attackers who were among some 200 Al-Shabaab fighters who had crossed into Kotulo from Somalia in the past fews weeks to carry out attacks on unspecified locations in the country.

The attackers of the bus attack first sprayed bullets at the Makkah Bus in efforts to stop it in vain killing one person on board.

Witnesses said the Al-Qaida allied militants first killed one person in the bus and a second on in a lorry that was also at the scene. The militants also shot at a lorry that was passing by and killed a passenger.

Witnesses said the insurgents had asked the passengers to alight from the vehicle and attempted to separate Muslims and non-Muslims but the passengers refused.

This is not the first bus attack in the region. In November 2014, 28 non-Muslims were killed on their way to Nairobi for the holiday season after singling them out from the rest of the passengers. Enditem
