Al-Shabab militants from Somalia have murdered 28 non-Muslims after hijacking a bus in northern Kenya, police sources said.

The bus was travelling to the capital Nairobi when it was hijacked 31 miles from Mandera town. The gunmen singled out non-Muslims and shot them dead, officers said.

Kenya has been hit by a series of gun and bomb attacks blamed on Somalia’s al Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants since it sent troops into Somalia in October 2011.

Authorities say there have been at least 135 attacks since then, including the Westgate Mall massacre in which 67 people were killed.
