Kenya FM says Iraq, Afghan, Pakistan fighters in Somalia

Published: July 8, 2010

Kenya’s foreign minister says fighters from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan are relocating to what he called a “safehaven” in the failed state of Somalia.
Moses M. Wetangula tells The Associated Press in an interview Thursday that countries in East Africa are more vulnerable to terrorist attack because of an increase in Somalia’s militant activity.
The foreign minister says intelligence reports show that Afghans, Pakistanis and fighters from Middle Eastern countries have joined Somali militants.
Wetangula says he can’t quantify the number of fighters but that there are enough to worry the international community.
Wetangula also said he does not believe the United States is doing enough to help the Somali situation.
