Somalia’s al-Shabab killed ‘180 Kenyan troops’ in el-Ade – BBC News

At least 180 Kenyan troops were killed when al-Shabab attacked their base last month, Somalia’s president has said.

Kenya’s army said the number was untrue, but again refused to give its own casualty figures for the assault in the southern Somali base of el-Ade.

The Islamist militant group said it had killed about 100 Kenyan troops.
