3:53 am
what we cannot talk of resides inside us yet but what they are doing is in an attempt to stay off rule they have been cutting out more attacks to show that this feel they're still present and that is one of the reasons why they've been cutting out so many attacks not only in somalia but also outside to show the world that it is still there despite losing most of their album strongholds as well as their main sources of revenue crude in ports where they used to rearm themselves and the target last tuesday in nairobi is one of the one in which al shabaab wants to show that it east ttyl a force to be reckoned with kenyan police say four out of the five attack us what kenyan something that is raising concern that the country could be facing the threat of homegrown terrorism. this sprawling informal subtle mental

3:55 am
residents of my general blame the ease with which al shabab can recruit on law literacy joblessness and drug abuse among the youth here it is a situation that is far more compounded by feelings of state and the condition by residents of this neighborhood kenyans in the past have blamed the violence carried out by al shabaab on fighters coming from beyond their national borders but last tuesday's assault on a shopping complex in the capital is forcing kenyans to consider the threats posed by those a home police confirmed most of the five attackers were convince. in nairobi somali majority suburb obviously presidents up come out to show their anger about the talk unified in grief their message was one of love in the face of such. businesses in the business leave markets remain closed for several hours to honor the dead a remarkable moment of defiance by
