ISIS may launch attacks in Kenya – Police ChiefA top Kenyan official has said that they are in ‘’real danger’’ that global terror outfit ISIS (Daesh) may launch attacks in the East African nation.
Speaking to reporters in Nairobi, Inspector General of the Kenya Police Service Joseph Boinnet revealed that ISIS-linked militants are presently operating across the Kenya-Somalia border.
He added that 200 al-Shabaab fighters defected to pledge allegiance to the notorious Middle-East based group which is seeking to expand its campaign across the African continent.
“They plan to prove a point by staging attacks. That makes us in real and present danger of being hit by those murderous elements,’’ he was quoted saying.
Kenya has suffered a series of attacks since invading Somalia in 2011 to attack al-Shabaab, who it accused of threatening its tourism industry. Kenyan forces have since joined an African Union force battling the Islamists.
