Kenya: Kenyans arrested in South Sudan enroute ISIS camp

Nairobi, Kenya (PANA) - Four people, three of them Kenyans and a Somali national, have been arrested in Juba, South Sudan, on their way to Libya, where security forces believed they planned to cross the Mediterranean Sea into Europe to join the Islamic State (ISIS), Kenyan Police Inspector-General Joseph Boinnet said on Tuesday.

The three Kenyans, Adan Mohamed Sheikh, Said Ahmed Dubow and Mohamed Abdi Mohamed, were arrested alongside their Somali counterpart, Abdiqan Abdishakur Shobay, after traveling to Juba through Uganda in order to cross into Libya, according to Police.

Police in Kenya believe the four were part of a larger contingent of fighters recruited by two Kenyan facilitators who were on their way to Libya to cross as migrants into Europe.

The private Daily newspaper, the Standard, reported that two other Kenyans were on the Police watch-list for assisting the four terror suspects. Police have described the four as armed and dangerous.
