Ali Nawaz Leghari, 40, killed the two girls and three boys ? aged between three and 13 ? in a village in the southern Sindh province, some 140 miles north of Karachi.

At least three people were killed and some injured when suspected al-Shabab militants ambushed a commuter bus in the Kenyan border region on Wednesday, officials said.

Nicodemus Ndalana, northeastern regional commissioner, said the bus named Moyale Raha was en route to Nairobi from Mandera County which borders Somalia when the militants struck.

Ndalana said that the militants, whose number was not immediately known, ambushed the bus at a corner before ordering the driver to stop at Banisa area.

“It is at this point that they shot two non-locals dead, the third passenger, a local, died from excessive bleeding following injuries he had sustained,” he told Xinhua.

Ndalana said that the police from the nearby station immediately responded.

Kenya’s northeastern region has borne the brunt of grenade and gun attacks in the last several years since Kenya took its troops to Somalia in 2011 to fight the al-Shabab militia group. Enditem
