Mombasa - Police on Friday arrested six terror suspects in Mombasa.

The suspects were later brought before a Mombasa court on charges of alleged links with Somalia-based militant group Al-Shabaab.

Investigative officer Charles Mwai told the court that they believed one of the suspects, Sahara Hussein, recruited the other five suspects, who are all from Somalia, to join Al-Shabaab, adding that probes were underway.
