Kenyan authorities said militants from the same extremist group, al Shabaab, that took over a Nairobi mall have attacked a security post near the Somali border, killing two police officers.

The attack that took place earlier today is the second by al Shabaab after the bloody four-day standoff at the Westgate Mall that ended Tuesday in which at least 67 people were killed.

Al Shabaab threatened in a message yesterday that if the Kenyan troops remain in Somalia, Kenyans must “be prepared for an abundance of blood.”

Regional police chief Charlton Mureithi says the militants’ attack in the town of Mandera also resulted in three police officers injured and 11 vehicles destroyed.

Militants attacked the border town of Wajir, killing one and wounding four persons after a gunman opened fire and threw grenades yesterday night.
