GARISSA, Kenya (Reuters) - Somalia’s al Shabaab rebels ambushed a Kenyan military convoy in the south of the Horn of Africa nation on Tuesday, the insurgents, a pro-Somali government militia and a Kenyan security source told Reuters.

The Kenyan security source said a number of al Shabaab fighters had been killed in a firefight and three Kenyan soldiers were wounded. Kenya’s military spokesman did not respond to phone calls from Reuters seeking further comment.
