Somalis in Kenya fear backlash after Westgate siege

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2013-09-27

Following the Westgate shopping centre siege in Kenya, Nairobi’s Somali residents say they are living in fear of revenge attacks against them. Watch FRANCE 24's report from Nairobi.

In the wake of the Westgate shopping centre siege in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, the city’s Somali residents say they are living in fear of revenge attacks.

Kenya is home to three million ethnic Somalis, some of whom are Somalian nationals, and the neighbourhood of Eastleigh is nicknamed “Little Mogadishu”. Many of its residents fled to Kenya in the past two decades to escape the deadly civil war raging in their home country.

With Kenya sending troops into Somalia, tensions between Somalis and Kenyans in Nairobi have flared over the last two years, with a spike in violence and arrests of Somalis for suspected terrorism activity.

Watch FRANCE 24's report from Eastleigh in Nairobi.
