The Ministry for Interior last month released the names and pictures of thirty-five people believed to be part of the terrorist group, Al-Shabaab that has been terrorising Lamu and Boni residents.

One person was killed and nine houses torched by suspected Al Shabaab militants in Lamu.

The attack happened Saturday night at Marafa and Poromoko in Lamu West sub-county.

According to residents, the assailants who escaped and raided their homes were heavily armed.

The latest attack comes in the wake of heightened operations to address the terror-related menace in the region.

No arrests have been made even as police who appealed for calm launched investigations.
