Three Americans killed in Kenya terror attack | CNN

A U.S. service member and two civilian contractors were killed in a terror attack at a Kenya Defense Force in Manda Bay, Kenya on Sunday. Their names have not been released. Two DoD members were wounded in the attack and are now in stable condition. CNN has confirmed that the attack was carried out by Al-Shabaab, who has previously pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda. According to U.S. authorities, the details of the attack include small and indirect arms fire. The US Africa Command and the Kenya Defense forces fought back the attack. The base is used by U.S. Special Operations forces for missions, such as training African allies, protecting U.S. interests and responding to crises.
