Storyline:National News, Security

One person was killed and three others injured Wednesday in the Gedo region after Kenyan troops there allegedly opened fire on civilians.

Sources said the troops opened fire at civilians in El-Adde village killing one person and injuring three others. It was not immediately clear under what circumstances the incident allegedly happened.

Jubbaland administration has not commented on the matter. Kenya has about 4,000 troops serving under AMISOM in Somalia but also maintains others outside the African Union framework like just like Ethiopia does.

Kenyan troops are stationed in sector two which covers Lower and Middle under the AMISOM troops distribution formula.
