Kenya media reports that a Swedish national has been arrested in connection with Al-Shabaab activities.
This is happening at a time the government is having a crackdown on foreigners flocking to Kenya to join Islamist group Al-Shabaab that has terrorized the Somali people in their country.
According to the Standard newspaper of Kenya “Anti-terror police arrested Magd Najjar in Eastleigh after they learnt he was here illegally and was eager to join or had joined the militant group. Police spokesman Eric Kiraithe later said Najjar was an accomplice of the wanted German terror suspect Ahmed Khaled Mueller and they had a similar mission in the country.”
