The attack happened in Witu, just outside Mpeketoni, close to the scene of last week’s attack. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Lamu County Commissioner Stephen Ikua confirmed Monday night’s attack and said the killers had not been caught.

It seems that ‘militants’ is the current euphemism for ‘terrorists’.
