Kenya: Curfew In Coastal Region After Beheadings
Kenya’s government has also imposed a dawn to dusk curfew in the volatile coastal region of Lamu following the killing of seven people, two of whom were beheaded by suspected militant Islamists. Security Minister Fred Matiangi also said the curfew was aimed at helping the security forces to also hunt down the militants. Several
suspects too have already been arrested according to a police spokesman. Despite the presence of Kenya and United States military personnel, the al-Shabab which is affiliated to al-Qaeda has carried out several attacks in the region leaving tens of people dead and also homes burnt. In the latest attack on Monday, five people were shot dead and two others beheaded.
