Two policemen were killed on Sunday 3 September, when four gunmen attacked St Paul’s Anglican Church in Ukunda, south-east Kenya, while a service was taking place. Just as the pastor was about to begin his sermon, gunshots were heard outside. The attackers escaped on motorbikes, leaving both policemen fatally wounded. Police are still investigating, but it has been suggested that militants from the Somali-based terror group Al Shabaab were behind the attack. Nine Christians were murdered in an attack by Al Shabaab in south-east Kenya in July – gunmen went from house to house, singling out Christians for execution.

Al Shabaab has claimed attacks in Kenya are a response to the presence of Kenyan soldiers taking part of the African Union Mission in Somalia.

which has openly stated its aim of establishing an Islamic state in the region
