Saitoti says Kenyan authorities suspect sympathizers with Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militia are behind the attack.

The group has been linked to a string of attacks on Kenyan soil after Kenya sent troops into Somalia in October.

Kenya was worried that instability from Somalia’s 21-year-old civil war was spilling across the two countries’ shared border.
