Gatissa - A remote-controlled bomb hit a police vehicle in Kenya's Dadaab refugee complex near the border with Somalia on Tuesday, a senior local official said, the second such attack in the camp in less than two weeks.

"There was an explosion in Hagadera that struck a police car," Dadaab District Commissioner Ndambuki Muthike told Reuters, referring to one of the complex's three camps.

"We heard that the car has been completely destroyed."

Witnesses confirmed the incident. There was no immediate word on casualties.
