DHOBLEY, Somalia - Al Shabaab militants launched yet another deadly attack on Kenyans on the night of Tuesday, September 5, one that left the construction workers dead, Garowe Online reports.

The trio died in Dhobley area in Somalia after the militants reportedly shot them in the head as they worked on a project.
