Somalia's al-Qaida-linked al-Shabaab movement has claimed to be behind an attack by gunmen on a bus in Kenya that has killed seven people.
According to the Kenya Red Cross, two of the victims were security officials and five were civilians. Friday night's attack took place on the northern coast at Corner Mbaya, just outside the town of Witu. Previous coastal attacks have claimed at least 87 lives.
Gunmen blocked the bus with their car and sprayed it with bullets. According to Kenyan police, they also opened fire on a police car which had stopped to intervene, as well as a third car. Two lorries carrying mangos were also targeted, according to Reuters. Authorities believe many of the survivors of the attack in the 52-seater bus fled into a nearby forest.
Al-Shabaab has also taken responsibility for previous attacks in the area but the Kenyan government insists local political networks have been behind these. Despite the heavy deployment of security forces in the region following attacks in June and early July, the raids have continued.

How hard could it possibly be to attack a bus...
This is basically like admitting that you’re a B-Team terrorist group.
Their objective is to terrorize the population.
Nearly all of Kenya travels via buses of various sizes at one time or another.
You can be the "B-team", the waterboys or the cheer leaders of jihad but if you succeed in terrorizing people then you have accomplished your objective.
This is not the latest CG Hollywood blockbuster trying to win a special effects Oscar, not is is a bunch of Darwin Award wannabes and their skateboards on YouTube seeking style points. These are maniacal killers.
The blood of infidels is all that matters to them. Infidel warriors, police, shoppers, bus riders, school children - it makes no difference to these jihadist scum.
Pure evil. And no one can, or will, stop them.
