Germany arrests three Shebab suspects returning from Kenya

AMISOM troops arrive in the town of Kurtunwaarey in the Lower Shabelle region of SomaliaThree German men were arrested at the weekend when they flew home from Kenya, on suspicion of being members of Somalia’s Shebab Islamist militant group, officials said Monday. “Three suspects were arrested at Frankfurt airport” on Saturday, a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutors service told AFP, adding that a press conference was planned for later in the day. Public broadcaster SWR earlier reported the men had returned to Germany because they no longer wanted to take part in combat for the Shebab. Shebab, Al-Qaeda’s main affiliate in Africa, controls vast swathes of Somalia’s rural hinterland from which it carries out regular guerrilla attacks against government institutions and international forces based in the capital Mogadishu.
