Kenya president pledges to fight back against terrorists


The charred remains of a minibus and piles of clothes are the chilling reminder of the twin bomb blasts which tore through a Nairobi market on Friday, killing ten and leaving dozens of people wounded.

It is part of a string of terrorist attacks blamed on militant Islamist group al-Shabab from neighbouring Somalia. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta pledged to fight back saying, “I urge all Kenyans to be vigilant and to remain and report any suspicious movement that they may detect. This is our battle together and we must work together to win it.”

In a bid to rid Kenya of the terrorist threat, the authorities recently rounded-up refugees from Somalia in Nairobi as they suspected members of Al-Shabab to be hiding amongst them.

The militant group were behind the attack which killed 67 in a siege at the Westgate shopping centre last September.
