NAIROBI, Kenya — The Kenyan military says that dozens of Somali militants and 11 Somali government soldiers have died in recent battles.
A statement from Kenya’s military spokesman Tuesday said that five al-Shabab fighters on a boat attacked a Kenyan naval vessel on Monday. The statement said the navy sunk the attacking boat.
It was impossible to independently verify the Kenyan military’s claims.
Kenyan troops moved into Somalia in October to fight al-Shabab militants.
