` Hundreds of Somalis Are Expelled from Kenya Following Crack-Down on Al-Qaeda-linked Shabab ‘

#AceWorldNews – SOMALIA – May 23 – Hundreds of Somalis have been expelled from Kenya, with 98 in the latest batch sent back in a major crackdown on suspected Islamists, AFP said, citing a report of the Human Rights Watch (HRW).

The crackdown has seen people held in police cells or a football stadium, the group said Friday.

This follows a spate of attacks in Kenya by suspected supporters of Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Shabab rebels.

A batch sent to Somalia by air-plane on Tuesday was reportedly the fourth round sent home, taking the total expelled to 359.
