Somalia: Kenya says 30 people were killed by Al Shabaab

MOGADISHU, Somalia Feb 19 2012 (Garowe Online) - Authorities in Kenya say that at least 30 civilians were killed by Al Shabaab since the Kenyan intervention in October, Radio Garowe reports.

The Kenyan police spokesman Eric Kiraithe told reporters that these killings were carried out by Al Shabaab agents that have been operating in districts near the Kenyan, Somali border. "Al Shabaab has recruited many agents from Kenya, these agents are trained and then sent out to commit attacks," said Mr. Kiraithe.

Kenya has held Al Shabaab responsible for recent attacks on Kenyan nationals. In January Al Shabaab agents stormed the district of Wajeer which is in north Kenya. The agents killed 6 and abducted two Kenyans Yesse Mule Edward and Fredrick Irungu.

Kenya's The Standard newspaper said that the Kenyan military has identified the location of 10 Kenyans. Colonel Cyrus Oguna the Kenyan defense forces spokesman told a news conference, "We have engaged the assistance of local leaders and religious men to negotiate their release. It is important to note that we are not negotiating with Al-Shabaab; Al Shabaab still remains a terrorist organisation and our Government does not negotiate with terrorists."
