Mombasa - Kenyan police say they have arrested an imam after they found a cache of weapons in his house.
The chief of police for the coastal region says that the suspect is a sympathiser with Somalia's al-Shabaab militia. Deputy commissioner Aggrey Adoli says that the haul included a pistol, a rifle, bomb detonators and some hand grenades.
Aboud Rogo was named in a UN report last year as having links to al-Shabaab. He is currently on bail for possession of weapons.
But Rogo's wife Khania Saidi Sagar says that police framed her husband.
She says the house was searched in front of Rogo's mother and children and nothing was found.
