NAIROBI — A wave of bombings, shootings and hand-grenade attacks blamed on Somali militants prompted Kenya yesterday to order all refugees and asylum seekers to report to two camps and to bar them from living in towns.

Badu Katelo, the acting commissioner for refugee affairs in Kenya, said the decision was taken by the government following the attacks by people who are thought to be from Somalia. The directive would affect more than 100 000 refugees of various nationalities living in urban areas. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
