Kenya, Somalia Agree to Resolve Simmering Tensions

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Somalia counterpart Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo have agreed to appoint committees to look into several matters, including border security. Tensions between the two countries simmered after heavy fighting broke out between Somalia's forces and militia who are supportive of a fugitive regional security minister near the Mandera border.
