Kenyan police stop major terror attack
Friday 14 September 2012
Kenyan police say they have arrested two people suspected to have links with an al-Qa'ida-linked Somali militant group that was in the last stages of planning a major terrorist attack on Kenyan soil.
Boniface Mwaniki , the head of Kenya's Anti-Terrorism Police Unit, said today that police found four suicide vests, a cache of weapons and 12 grenades.
Kenya has suffered grenade attacks that have killed more than 50 people. Police have attributed them to sympathizers of the al-Shabab militant group in Kenya.
Al-Shabab has vowed to carry out terror attacks in Kenya in retaliation against the country for sending troops into Somalia to hunt the militants it blames for a series of cross border attacks, including the kidnapping of four Europeans last year.
