XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 
Kenya offers 160,000 USD reward for arrest of 8 terror suspects

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenyan police on Thursday offered 160,000 U.S. dollars in bounty for information that will lead to the arrest of eight terror suspects.

“As part of our enhanced multi-agency counter terrorism efforts, we have identified eight individuals whose images appear as being the ones planning and attempting to infiltrate terrorist operatives into our country in order to stage attacks,” Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett said in a statement.

Boinett said there are rising attempts by the Somalia-based al-Shabab terror group to infiltrate the country to stage attacks.

He said the terror threat remains real, hence the need for alertness all the time.

The alert comes two months after police revealed terrorists who were intercepted in Kenya’s Isiolo had planned to attack government buildings.

The East African nation has faced increasing bomb attacks using improvised explosive devices and grenades in the northeastern and coastal regions since Kenyan solders entered Somalia in 2011 to fight al-Shabab.

Kenyan police have also stepped up security in all key installations around the country particularly along the border with neighboring Somalia.
