GARISSA, Kenya | Sat Nov 26, 2011 4:21pm GMT
(Reuters) - Suspected Somali al Shabaab rebel fighters raided a police post near Mandera in northern Kenya Saturday, seizing weapons and burning a mobile phone transmission mast, security officials said.
The group of fighters attacked Arabiya, a trading centre 60 kilometres from Mandera, and engaged police in a firefight before overpowering them and taking all the guns and bullets from the local police post.
"Arabiya was attacked. We believe it's al Shabaab. They destroyed, burnt a communication booster and took ammunition at the police post," North Eastern Provincial police commander Leo Nyongesa told Reuters by phone.
There were no injuries or deaths reported.
Kenya ordered its soldiers across the border in October to crush the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab who it said had attacked its security forces and tourists inside Kenya.
ARRESTS
The latest incident comes days after grenade attacks in the frontier town of Garissa killed six, and a roadside bomb killed a soldier in Mandera town.
Nyongesa said police had arrested five people suspected to be involved in the Garissa attack.
Although there appears to be little progress on the ground in Somalia as torrential rains bog down operations, more airstrikes have been launched on al Shabaab strongholds in recent days and there have been skirmishes and bomb attacks in northern Kenya.
"The week has been very intense with air operations that have been aimed at decimating and degrading al Shabaab capacity to be able to plan and launch operations in the country," Kenya Defence Force's Colonel Cyrus Oguna told a news conference in Nairobi.
During the operation, now in its sixth week, four soldiers have died in direct combat, in addition to five killed in a helicopter crash at the start of the incursion. One was missing at sea.
Oguna said nine people arrested Friday in separate incidents on Lamu island were suspected of being al Shabaab members.
Kenya is the latest foreign power to try to stabilise Somalia, which has been mired in violence for two decades since the overthrow of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre in 1991 allowed first warlords, then Islamist militants, to step into a power vacuum.
Friday, officials from Ethiopia, whose soldiers have been in Somalia before, said the country will deploy troops to the anarchic Horn of Africa state for a "brief period" to help Somali and Kenyan forces battling al Shabaab.
In an emailed statement responding to Ethiopia's plan, al Shabaab said: "The people of Somalia shall never accept or live under the humiliation of occupation and the spirit of resistance shall not fade as long as a single invader remains alive on Somali soil."

Aside from the usual fare of alternative rock, jazz, and
pop, among others, this station also showcases the work of and connects with
indie artists from all over the globe. One thing about conventional radio that’s gotten quite
annoying over the years is that the networks have switched around trying to
find programming so often that you don’t even know where to go
for your musical preference anymore. While traditional radio broadcasters have often
used the Internet to advertise or promote their shows, Internet radio technology has actually revolutionized the concept and simple programming requirements have taken it
to the extent where individuals, organizations or anyone for that matter, can easily host their own Internet talk radio station from the comfort of their home.

But also since then, we as a country, and as just as well, a world, have become
basically addicted and dependent on our radios.

In my case I listen to all music that is submitted to me before I include it on
my playlist. You can in fact lend your ears to varied
musical programs on rock music, jazz, country music and many more.

While having a passion for playing games is important, getting a
rewarding career in game design will require students to be a cut above
the competition. It can go as far as ruining their experience since it is the last interaction they have with a game.

There are many free online games readily available for young kids, teens,
as well as grown ups. If you don’t have much
skill in programming, but still think that creating and developing games is the most suitable for you, there are special courses
that will give you training in graphic designing, game development, and computer animation.

The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines and echoey, breathy vocals all
underpinned by varying funk and R&B-based rhythms.
What we can do is to really accept what we did while forgiving that part of us that was unaware of what we were doing or how it would impact other people;
the part that just doesn't always get it right. I would recommend having a Mimosa out on the patio overlooking the waterway.

Facebook has groups, applications, and many of the exact same features of My - Space, delivered in just about the same way.
The "Export to Facebook " plugin is simple to use and allows you to export a

The most attractive feature of an online radio tuner is its ability
to record what you're listening to. For instance i - Pod users will have difficulty syncing their devices with i - Tunes; the popular media player, sync and marketplace application isn't available on Linux.

Try simple games and check how your internet connection is and then move on play more games.
Imagine never having to worry about what to wear to work, and even the infuriating traffic jams that never seem to end.
The most unique thing about Ouya is that it is said to be "open" --
although what this means is up for interpretation.

Upon examining some etymological dictionaries, one can conclude that games are a creative expression of the human spirit through the creation of an activity that has an entertaining,
instructive and competing element. Port forwarding lets you specify which ports the game
needs to perform at it's best. It's fast to build and play and will challenge
your memory.

It iis based on computer with electrographic sensor technology.
All spaceship game leveling systems are designed
slightly differently, but there are some general concepts that apply to all games
in this genre. If you want to be able to hit the ball further and harder, you should keep in mind
to keep your grip on the bat loose, your swing should begin with your
legs and hips, and finally, you must always follow your bat through.

Congress tried in 2007 to pass a measure that would lock in the rate that

Literally wiping sweat from my forehead after doing my best 90s

of Special Ed, Eric B. In my case I listen to all music that is submitted to

You can pick up basic equipment for very little or you can go for higher quality tackle and spend hundreds
or thousands. Depending on how you're going to want to do your fishing you'll want to find
a boat to rent for Michigan fishing. If the fish are not hitting on
your main crappie jigs you may need to switch to live bait or a combination of live and artificial baits.

Perfect for a chillout slow jam hangout after the clubs close.
I know a lot more music now than before and have changed my tastes.
It was the perfect place to meet friends after work, have a
few drinks, and unwind.

Like any game, when we stay within the rules, we score, and when
we play outside the rules there of course is a penalty.
Age Level - A good factor to write about is the appropriate age level
for the video game that you are reviewing. Are you a Kansas City Chiefs or

There are also significant role that your cake can
play in your wedding day. Later, during the Middle Ages, many guests would bring small cakes to the wedding celebration.
Typically overlooked as practically nothing far more than just dessert belittled as a symbol that provides
nothing more than a location to stick the candles,
the birthday cake has lengthy been relegated to 2nd
tier status in the realm of get together arranging.

We can compare these three powerful mediums;
newspaper, radio and TV, to the transitional phases of the Internet, which went
quickly from obscurity to a household “must have". The ads featured on the Internet radio website can inspire listeners to make a purchase through the website itself. This means that you don't have to purchase additional hardware to be attached to your device or install another software program for you to enjoy online streaming radio.
