More terror suspects arrested in Mandera as 60 are charged for breaking curfew
Three more terror suspects have been arrested in Mandera, bringing the number to 11. They were apprehended at Border Point One and taken to court on Tuesday. The hunt for suspects has intensified, following two terror attacks in a span of three weeks last month, which claimed 18 lives. Six people were killed by al Shabaab militants at a residential building in Mandera town on October 6 and 12 slain on October 25 during an attack on the Bishaaro Lodge. One of the suspects charged is Abdirahman Ali, the caretaker of Bishaaro, who police and the prosecution believe knew of the attack beforehand. On Thursday last week the government imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew. More than 60 people have been arrested and charged for breaking it. Those found guilty have been fined Sh5,000 or sentenced to three months in jail.
