Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta says the country remains “unbowed and undeterred” in the fight against al-Shabab militants in Somalia. He made the speech this morning in Kenya’s Coastal region, saying Kenyans must stand with the families of the soldiers killed in a base in the southern Somali town of el-Adde on Friday. The flag-draped caskets of four Kenyan soldiers killed in Friday’s attack arrived at Nairobi’s Wilson Airport late Monday. Top military officials were there to receive the bodies. Al-Shabab has said it killed up to 100 Kenyan soldiers in its attack on an African Union base in the Somali town of el-Adde. There has been no independent confirmation of the claim and Kenyan officials have not released any casualty figures.
