Kenya: Kenyan citizens allegedly caught up in Somali round-up
Issued on: Modified:
Political opposition to the Kenyan government's mass round-up of ethnic Somalis is gathering momentum. Some 4,000 people have been arrested in the crackdown, which began a week ago as part of an anti-terror sweep by security forces. The policy is officially aimed at Somali refugees, but critics say its amounts to the creation of concentration camps and claim that Kenyan citizens are also being seized.
