Three teachers were killed Monday morning in a suspected Al Shabaab attack on a primary school in northeastern Kenya.
The incident happened in a Garrisa County near the Somali border, where Al Shabaab militants have increased attacks in recent weeks.
The assailants attacked a police post and partially damaged a telecommunications mast.
The police added that officers were in pursuit of the attackers.
Last week the alleged attackers also killed four children who sought refuge at a nearby police post in Saretho village, near Garrisa.
