The soldiers were on foot patrol when they were ambushed by gunmen on Saturday at about 10am at a place called Tabda. The other soldiers engaged the gang before they retreated into a forest in the area. “The three soldiers died while undergoing treatment while the rest are in stable condition,” said a military official who asked not to be named. According to officials, the injured were later driven to Dadaab refugee camp, near Kenya-Somalia border and later flown to Nairobi. The military chopper could not land in the area within Somalia because it was heavily raining, the officials said.
