A group of Kenyan Muslims travelling on a bus ambushed by Islamist gunmen protected Christian passengers by refusing to be split into groups, according to eyewitnesses.

According to BBC reports, the Muslims told the militants to either "to kill them together or leave them alone."

At least two people were killed in the attack, near the north-eastern village of El Wak on the Somali border.

The Somali based al-Shabab group is the main suspect for the attack.

“The locals showed a sense of patriotism and belonging to each other,” Mandera governor Ali Roba told Kenyan press.

The militants decided to leave after the passengers’ show of unity, he added.

An employee of the Makkah bus company, who had spoken to the driver involved in the attack, confirmed to the BBC that Muslims had refused to be separated from their fellow Christian passengers.
