What you need to know:

  • The soldiers, mainly from the Eldoret-based 9KR battalion, had only been there for two weeks.

  • It is also not clear whether the soldiers had information about the well-planned attack by the Saleh al-Nabhani battalion that caught them off guard.

An unknown number of soldiers escaped from the El-Adde camp during the Friday morning Al-Shabaab attack.
