Al-Shabaab release propaganda video on Mpeketoni attack

The Al Shabaab terror group on Tuesday released a propaganda video on the Mpeketoni attacks detailing how more than 60 people were butchered in cold blood.

The 34-minute-long video, done in three languages –Arabic, English and Swahili- has been produced in high-definition, Hollywood quality.

It opens with coverage by international media on the attacks, followed by  President Uhuru Kenyatta’s address to the nation that termed the attacks as political.

This is followed by an interview of government spokesman Manoah Esipisu affirming that the attacks were not by Al Shabaab militants.

A three-minute sermon by the late radical preacher Sheikh Aboud Rogo on jihad is also featured at the start of the video.

The group’s video shows the attackers –including a Westerner- entering the Kenyan coast on the fateful day of June 16.

It also details the Mpeketoni police station attack.
