Police arrest several, seize weapons in Kenya-Somalia border

11 July 2016, 08:07

Gedo - Somalia's Security forces arrested several people and seized a cache of weapons in the southern region of Gedo bordering Kenya.

Mohamed Hassan, a police chief in the Bardhere town in Gedo, told reporters the security forces launched an operation early Saturday.

"We have arrested suspects and recovered weapons in their possession. We are still carrying our investigations to establish their intentions," said Hassan.

Hassan did not give details about the weapons seized in the operation but said police were following up the matter.

Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab was flushed out of Bardhere last year by troops of the Africa Union Mission in Somalia. The town, with a largely agricultural economy, was a source of supplies for Al-Shabaab.

Al-Shabaab militants frequently carry out attacks in Somalia.
