A Kenya Police Reservist (KPR) was killed Monday morning after suspected Al-Shabaab militants hurled explosives at a bank and two hotels in Mandera town.

Police and the Kenya Defence Forces on Monday morning secured Equity Bank, which had one of its walls destroyed and windows shattered.

KDF sealed off the bank, Jabane hotel and a food kiosk located opposite Mandera deputy governor’s home to check whether there are other explosives.

Mandera County Commissioner Frederick Shisia said the police reservist was killed in the attack on the eatery near the deputy governor’s house.

There is a dusk to dawn curfew imposed in Mandera.
