The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Northeastern -

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.
