Police: These are the men behind terror in Kenya

Police have released pictures of two Kenyan men accused of masterminding terrorist attacks in the country.

The two are Mohamed Mohamud aka Dulyadin aka Gamadheere from Garissa and Ahmed Iman from Majengo slums in Nairobi.

“(They) are among key Al-Shabaab commanders being sought by the National Police Service for being behind a spate of terrorist attacks in the country,” Gideon M. Kimilu, the deputy director of Directorate of Criminal Investigations, said in a statement to newsrooms on Wednesday.

“Anybody who spots them or has information on their whereabouts should pass it to the nearest police station or administration unit for action,” he added.

Kenya has experienced 136 terror attacks since 2011 resulting in numerous deaths and casualties. The deadliest was in September last year when four armed terrorists stormed into Westgate Mall in Nairobi and massacred 67 people. And in November this year alone, 66 Kenyans were killed by the Al Shabaab in Mandera.

On Tuesday, the NGO coordination board announced that the government had deregistered 15 NGOs for funding terrorist activities in the country.
