Three Kenya Defence Forces soldiers were killed and eight wounded in an ambush by Al-Shabaab militants in Delbio area, Somalia.
The soldiers were patrolling in a vehicle when they were ambushed by gunmen on Saturday morning.
The other soldiers engaged the gang before they retreated into the forest.
According to officials, the injured were later driven to Kenya-Somalia border and later flown to Nairobi.
The military chopper could not land in the area within Somalia because of poor weather.
