Police in the sprawling Dadaab refugee camp in
northern Kenya have intensified an operation aimed at rescuing
two teachers who were abducted by Al-Shabaab militants a
Local police boss Aaron Moriasi told
reporters on Monday there are suspicions the kidnapped teachers
could be hidden in Dadaab refugee camp.

will be probed to shed light on the kidnapping of teachers.
"The arrested suspects will be investigated to enable police
to obtain more leads to the kidnapping saga," said Moriasi.

militants are common in north eastern Kenya.

stormed into a school compound in Dadaab refugee camp but their
attempts to abduct a female teacher were foiled.
