Kenyan fighter jets have bombed positions of militant Islamist group al-Shabab in neighbouring Somalia.

The warplanes had targeted two camps in the Gedo region, used by al-Shabab to cross into Kenya.

This is Kenya's first response to the al-Shabab assault which left 148 people dead at Garissa University last week.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had vowed to respond to the attack in the severest way possible.
