Five men who allegedly stormed a World Cup viewing party, injuring many people, are killed in Mpeketoni during an escape attempt. Armed men searched and stormed the city area, and they moved on to a residential area where they found the alleged party attackers. President Kenyatta said.
The attack was well planned, orchestrated and politically motivated ethnic violence against the Kenyan community with the intention of victimization for political reasons. This therefore was not an Al-Shabaab terrorist attack.
