Kenya: 5 terrorists killed, car bomb recovered
Bogita Ongeri said on Monday authorities recovered 100 kilograms of TNT from the vehicle which was intercepted at Dolo along Kenya's border with Ethiopia on Sunday.

Nairobi: A Kenyan military spokesman says Kenyan soldiers stopped a terror attack by killing five suspected Islamic extremist bombers attempting to cross into Kenya from Ethiopia in a car carrying explosives and six
suicide vests.

Bogita Ongeri said on Monday authorities recovered 100 kilograms of TNT from the vehicle which was intercepted at Dolo along Kenya's border with Ethiopia on Sunday.

Ongeri said security forces had been tracking the car which had Kenyan registration and were aware that the suspected terrorists had unsuccessfully tried to gain entry into Kenya at another border point.
