Arrest of Somali diplomat raises questions over war on terror

28 April 2014, 16:34 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Somali government has complained over what it terms the harassment of its nationals in Kenya.

Somalia's prime minister has expressed grave concern over the detention of what he says are law-abiding Somalis in the country, where police are conducting a security crackdown aimed at stopping terrorist attacks.

Police have arrested thousands of people, most of them ethnic Somalis, following a wave of violent attacks blamed on the Somali militant group al-Shabab.

The security operation has been strongly criticized by rights groups who say authorities are profiling Somalis and detaining them without trial.

Opposition coalition CORD has also badly criticized the operation terming it barbaric.

Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed said Monday the operation led to the arrest of Somalia's consular officer in Kenya, Siyad Mohamud Shire, violating his diplomatic immunity. Ahmed says most Somalis in Kenya are peaceful.

Al-Shabab has vowed to carry out attacks on Kenyan soil to avenge the presence of Kenyan troops in Somalia.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has also been on record as saying that the country will not hesitate to throw out elements it feels are bad for the country's peace.

" We will not hesitate to act on foreign nationals that are a problem to the peaceful co-existence of Kenyans.
