Reuters Africa is reporting at least six people were killed when gunmen sprayed two buses with bullets on Friday in Kenya’s Mandera county on the border with Somalia, a regional official said.

Mandera County Commissioner Fredrick Shisia told Reuters the attack happened at 9:30 a.m. (0630 GMT) as the buses were traveling to Mandera town from the capital Nairobi.

“So far we are talking of six dead,” he said, noting that the attack had happened on the road between Wargadud and Elwak.

The United States on Thursday warned its citizens against traveling to areas near the border with Somalia because of threats from Somali militant group al Shabaab.

Kenya’s buses have been plagued by terrorism for more than a decade. al Shabab has yet to claim responsibility for this act of terrorism.
