The 2010 Kenya–Al-Shabaab border clash occurred on July 20, 2010, when gunmen from the Al-Shabaab group attacked a Kenyan border patrol along the border area in Liboi, Lagdera. There was a subsequent fierce exchange of fire between the two sides leading to the deaths of 2 militia and the wounding of one Kenyan officer.[1] Hundreds of security personnel were later deployed to the border following the clash and because of continued fighting between two militia groups in the neighboring town of Dobley, Somalia.[2] The Islamist outfit had previously claimed responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing in Uganda in July.[1]
