Al-Shabaab attacks refugee camp in Kenya
ICC Note: Islamic terrorists like Al-Shabaab have no respect for human life and the vulnerability of their victims, as long as they are able to impose their Sharia Law in Kenya and the neighboring communities. The majority of the refugees that have fled their homes are victims of the constant attacks and violence that groups like Al-Shabaab have initiated. Unfortunately, Christians are usually the main target of Islamic militants and often times also suffer discrimination at refugee camps by some of their Muslim neighbors.
02/07/2017, Kenya (Tuko) – Kenyan police officers have engaged in a fierce gunfight with al-Shabaab militants in Garissa county.
