Al-Shabaab militants killed at least one person and destroyed a telecom mast in an attack on the town of Fafi in north-eastern Kenya, Kenyan officials and the militants said on Thursday.

The attack was the latest in a series of deadly raids by the group that has killed more than a dozen Kenyan police officers in recent weeks.

A local official, Yasin Shabel, said at least one person, a teacher, was abducted on Wednesday night and later killed by the heavily armed attackers.

“The abducted teacher was killed some distance away from Fafi. His body has been recovered,” Shabel told Reuters.

Al-Shabaab, through its spokesman for military operations Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, said it had killed two policemen in the Wednesday night attack and had carried out another attack on a convoy of security vehicles headed to Fafi on Thursday morning. He said they captured two police vehicles.
