Somali President: Al-Shabab killed 180 Kenyan troops in January attack

by

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.

Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud gave the death toll of 180 in an interview with a Somali television station, while defending his attendance at a memorial for the soldiers in Kenya. Some Somalis accused him on social media of showing greater concern for the killing of Kenyans than his own nationals.
“When 180 or close to 200 soldiers who were sent to us are killed in one day in Somalia, it’s not easy,” he said.
