The Battle of Baure was an Al-Shabaab attack on a Kenyan military base located next to the town of Baure, in Lamu County, Kenya. On the morning of 14 June at approximately 5.45am a group of al-Shabaab militants attacked the Kenyan army base. After a short engagement on the perimeter of the base the attack was repulsed, leaving 11 Al-Shabaab fighters and 2 Kenyan soldiers dead. The Al-Shabaab second-in-command was 25 year old British-born Thomas Evans (“Abdul Hakim”), who filmed the attack with a camera strapped to his body, and Evans died in the fighting. Evans was well integrated into al-Shabaab, having first joined in 2012, he spoke fluent Somali and issued commands and communicated with fellow fighters through radio. German-born Andreas Martin Muller (“Abu Nusaybah”) also took part in the attack, and escaped alive but wounded.
