Nairobi - Police in Kenya have launched a manhunt for a German citizen who allegedly illegally entered the East African country with the intent to aid the Somali Islamist militia al-Shabaab in carrying out terror attacks, local media reported on Sunday.
Police have called on the suspect, identified as Ahmed Khaled Mueller, to report himself immediately to the authorities. They have warned he could be armed.
Capital FM reported that police on Saturday night released a photo of the suspect, who may be using several aliases.
Kenya sent troops into southern Somalia in October to fight al-Shabaab, after blaming the group for a string of kidnappings on its territory. Supporters of the group have launched several attacks on Kenyan soil since the invasion.
