MOGADISHU - Kenya's military fought a clash with al-Shabaab fighters in southern Somalia on Tuesday, and Kenyan police said they had placed several people under surveillance to prevent attacks at home linked to the Somali insurgents.

The Kenyan military said one of its soldiers and six al-Shabaab fighters had been killed in the clash between the Somali towns of Tabda and Qoqani. Al Shabaab said none of its fighters and six Kenyan soldiers had died.

Kenyan troops crossed into Somalia in October after a wave of kidnappings and cross-border raids which Nairobi blamed on the Islamist rebels, who control large swathes of southern Somalia and are battling a weak Western-backed government.

Al-Shabaab fighters have denied responsibility for the kidnappings and threatened retaliatory attacks on Kenyans in response to the cross-border conflict.
