Police in Kenya have shot dead two suspected "terrorists", a man and woman who used a baby as a shield during a raid in which several police sustained grenade injuries, an officer said Sunday.
Police said they staged the raid Saturday night on a house where the two were holed up on the outskirts of the capital Nairobi.
"We received information that they were planning an attack. And as soon as we got to know their hide-out, we swung into action," Augustine Nthumbi, police chief for Nairobi's Kasarani suburb and the leader of the operation, told journalists Sunday.
