kenya where 3 americans were killed in an attack on an airfield in the coastal region off militants from the al-shabaab extremist group stormed the man debate if field in on sunday these pictures proport to show the fiery off to mark off the attack on the facility which is used by u.s. and kenyan forces. as against al qaeda and is headquartered in neighboring somalia it's the group's 1st assault on u.s. forces inside kenya. for more on this i'm joined by movie thing will take up from the international crisis group peace they project director for the horn of africa welcome to day to have the africa why did it target the kenyan if field. i think al shabaab had 2 principal the last of course we know that they try to project strength within somalia this would have been sending a message to both the government in somalia and also support that it remains
7:39 pm
a positive force and it can strike both internally and externally i think the 2nd message were principally be to the kenyans and to the americans who have stepped up their campaigns against al shabaab particularly through a series of drone strikes by the american forces in the last year we saw almost a record number of strikes with the insults central somalia and this would have been tended to restrike right what does this tell us about al shabaab strength in the region. i think bugs fortunes of what and wind over the last decade but over the last 2 years they reinvented themselves the shield themselves to be adaptive and resilient and unfortunately as digital as these are huge documents governments within their principle stronghold insult central somalia would retain the capacity both to raise
7:40 pm
finances with which to find a parishioner but also and critically to be able to plan operations almost with impunity. and what effect will this have on kenya. i think what's important to remember is that while this attack has drawn a lot of attention and shabaab has been rightly i look pretty inside good c. in northern kenya so most of the last 6 or 7 years they did multiple ambushes on civilians killed. passengers on buses drooled roadside bombs or security personnel this is not really new it probably doesn't change too much in the kenyan police jumped but it will reach significant questions on hollow al shabaab could successfully infiltrate a very important and permanent base such as this we don't dissipate
7:41 pm
