Nairobi - Kenya's military says its air force has attacked a
militant training camp in Somalia in retaliation for last month's al-Shabaab
assault on Nairobi's Westgate mall.
Colonel Cyrus Oguna said on Thursday the militants who
carried out the Westgate attack received training at the camp, which he said
was 50km east of Binswor, Somalia.
Oguna said the military won't know how many of the 300
militants in the camp were killed or wounded until an assessment on Friday. He
said four military trucks were destroyed. Oguna said "many more" such
attacks will be carried out.
The four-day siege of Westgate mall began on 21 September.
The al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab said it carried out the attack, which killed
at least 67 people, in retaliation for the Kenyan military's push into Somalia
