Kenya: Police Arrest Suspect in Garissa Attacks

Kenyan police on Saturday (February 23rd) arrested a man they suspect is responsible for a series of attacks in Garissa during the past several months, Kenya's Daily Nation reported.

The suspect is being interrogated by officers from the anti-terrorism police unit, said police officer Charlton Mureithi.

Police also believe that about five people were killed in a bomb blast at a Garissa primary school playground last week, after they found three left legs at the site. None of the bodies has been identified, Mureithi said.
