12 killed in suspected Al-Shabaab attack in Kenya

Islamic militant group Al-Shabaab is suspected to be behind an attack that claimed the lives of 12 people in Kenya.

While the details of the incident remain sketchy, more casualties are expected after a group of armed men opened fire on a lodge in the town of Mandera bordering Somalia.

702's John Robbie spoke to Southern Africa Editor for Africa Report, Crystal Orderson, who hopes to gather more about details of the matter.
