Suspected al-Shabab militants killed a teacher and abducted another as they burned down a school late Wednesday in northeastern Kenya.

The Kenyan MP from the region Musfafe Abdirashid told VOA's Somali Service a number of militants entered Fafi village, about 90 kilometers east of Garissa town, and created havoc.

“They killed one local teacher and abducted another one; also they have destroyed telecommunication masts to disrupt communications," Abdirashid said.


“We have informed government security forces about the attack and KDF forces were deployed to the area this morning,” he added.

A local reporter says the militants also burned a police car and injured three policemen who were tracking them after the attack in Fafi.

Attacks by al-Shabab militants in Kenya have risen sharply in the last few weeks. On Wednesday, the group claimed responsibility for a roadside bomb in coastal Lamu County that killed five security personnel.

The Somalia-based militants have been active in Kenya since the government deployed troops to Somalia six years ago.
