Shabaab threaten Kenya skyscrapers

2012-05-31 21:31

Nairobi - A private intelligence firm says the Somali militant group al-Shabaab has made another threat against Kenya's skyscrapers, a warning that followed a bomb attack in Nairobi's city centre.

IntelCenter said al-Shabaab posted threats on a website on Wednesday that said "something big is coming" within the next two weeks. The posting said the country would soon "watch your towers coming down".

The threat is the third that al-Shabaab has made against Kenyan buildings. The first came days after Kenya sent troops into Somalia last October to fight al-Shabaab militants. A second threat came in January.

Al-Shabaab is suspected in Monday's bomb attack in central Nairobi that killed one person and injured more than 30.

    We await condemnation of Al Shabaab (as well as Boko Haram, etc), its activities and threats, by ordinary Muslims. Unfortunately history shows that I would be foolish to hold my breath.
