Al-Shabaab fighters reportedly killed four Christian men in Kenya’s Lamu County last week, beheading three and burning alive another.
“Late in the night on August 17, al-Shabaab militants entered Maleli village of Witu and killed the four men; three were hacked to death with machetes and one was burned inside his home,” International Christian Concern reported on Monday.
“The four men who were killed are Stephen Hizano Ponda, Charo Karisa Ngoa, Naphtali Katana Kadenge, and Joseph Gasena Ngoa.”
A police source told Reuters that three of the men’s “heads were cut off from the rest of their bodies.”
The Somali-based terrorist group has been seeking out and slaughtering Christians in Kenya. The extremists murdered seven believers in a series of deadly raids in July.
The latest attack came as Uhuru Kenyatta, the president of Kenya, had urged families to remain at displacement camps as the army attempts to eradicate the terrorist threat in the area.
