Somali Team Denied Entry Into Kenya as Diplomatic Row Deepens

Kenyan officials at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport have stopped  the junior Minister of Water and Energy Osman Libah and legislators Ilyas Ali Hassan and Zamzam Dahir from entering Kenya despite them having diplomatic passports. This comes barely a week after the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority redirected flights from Mogadishu to Wajir for security checks, before proceeding to any other airport in Kenya.
