Somalia: We Are Pondering Launching Attacks On Kenya - Al Shabaab

Afgoye — Al shabaab is considering and pondering waging reactive attacks on neighboring east African nation of Kenya, an Al shabaab official said on Monday.

Sheikh Mukhtar Robow Ali better known as Abu Mansur, a high ranking Al shabaab official, said again that Kenyan government has turned a deaf ear previous warning messages by the group.

He accused Kenya of arresting capriciously Somali people fled to Mandere, a Kenyan district in Somalia-Kenya border over links with Al shabaab. Abu Mansur called for Somali army not fight along with Ethiopian military forces, whom he said they illegally entered Somalia.

The comments of Al shabaab, which declared its allegiance to Al Qaeda, come days after Kenya sealed off its border with Somalia and denied it had involved in Somalia conflict.
