Al-Shabaab gunmen killed at least six people, including a 15-year-old boy, in an attack along Kenya's border with Somalia Saturday (May 25th), Kenya's Capital FM reported.

"A small unit of Mujahideen raided the Kenyan base early last night, taking over the base, killing 8 Kuffar and injuring more than a dozen," al-Shabaab posted on Twitter on Sunday. Al-Shabaab also claimed to have kidnapped two Kenyans and seized guns.

Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said al-Shabaab killed six people. He said gunmen attacked two Administration Police camps at about 5:30 pm, killing the boy, two police officers, a Red Cross official and two civilians.

"Security has been beefed up in the two camps and the general area by deployment of additional General Service Unit and Rapid Deployment Unit officers," he said.
