“The Divisional Police Headquarters has been set ablaze and most of the community members are on the run for their lives.

“The terrorists claimed that the attack was a reprisal attack as the local Vicila tee group had killed three of their members.

” I can tell you that we can see them trooping in their hundred into the town riding motorcycles from where we are hiding in the bush.“
