NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Kenyan government official says a roadside bomb exploded in Kenya's largest refugee camp near the border with Somalia, killing one police officer and wounding three.

Provincial commissioner James Seriani says the explosion took place in the Dadaab refugee camp on Monday. It's the third such roadside bomb attack in Dadaab in recent weeks.

Kenyan troops moved into Somalia in October to fight al-Shabab militants who have promised revenge attacks.
