A huge explosions rocked Bula Hawa on the Kenya-Somalia border in Mandera County on Friday morning but no casualties were reported.
Confirming the incident, Mandera County Commissioner Fredrick Shisia said there was only one blast suspected to have resulted from IEDs planted by Al Shabaab.
“The IED device exploded at about 8am at the border but no one was injured,” he said.
Police however said there were two blasts which occurred six minutes apart and caused by home-made bombs planted 15 metres apart.
The incident comes at a time when Mandera has enjoyed relative calm from terror attacks after Kenyan forces beefed up security along the porous Somali border.
