Militant group that attacked mall attacks Kenyan border towns
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The Islamic extremist group that killed scores of people at a Nairobi mall has now attacked two Kenyan towns near the Somali border, killing three people.
The leader of the Somali group affiliated with Al-Qaeda said the attacks will continue until Kenyan troops are withdrawn from Somalia.
The leader of al-Shabab said in a message that there is no way Kenya can "withstand a war of attrition inside your own country".
"Make your choice today and withdraw all your forces," said Ahmed Abdi Mohamed Godane, who goes by his nom de guerre Mukhtar Abu Zubayr, in a new statement posted on the Internet late on Wednesday.
