Two staff killed as gunmen open fire at Kenyan university

Al-Shabab is the most potent threat to east Africa's stability, having regained territory in parts of southern and central Somalia and carrying out frequent attacks in Somalia's capital and in Kenya, according to the US State Department.

The 22,000 troops in the African Union force pushed al-Shabab out of most of Somalia's cities and towns but the rebels continued to hold territory in southern Somalia where the extremist group "gained time and space needed to grow, regroup and recruit new fighters", said the report.
