Kenyan Police are holding three suspects who were arrested on Sunday after they attempted to break into a British Army base in Nanyuki.

The motive of the attempted forced entry into the British Army Training Unit in Kenya (BATUK) remains unclear but the three are suspected to have been spying on it.

“They tried to force their way there but they could not. So they were tracked down. They just had cameras I think but we are still interrogating them to find out the truth,” Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya told the media.

According to reports, the three had tried to enter the army base and failed but were caught on surveillance cameras.

The army base is said to have circulated the footage with local law enforcers who tracked down the suspects.

The incident comes a day after al-Shabaab fighters stormed joint Kenya army- US troops based in the coastal town of Lamu.

According to the US Africa command press statement, one soldier and two contractors were killed.
