Police arrest two Kenyan medical students trying to join ISIS

29 August 2016, 19:00

Nairobi - Police have arrested two medical interns suspected to part of latest batch of university students radicalised and lured to join the ISIS terror group in Libya.

The Star reported that Mohamed Shukri and Abdulrazak Abdinuur were arrested on Sunday in a joint operation by Mombasa and Nairobi anti-terror police in Malindi.

The two are attached to Malindi sub-county hospital.

Initial investigations have revealed that Shukri is part of the earlier ISIS recruitment network that was discovered by police and who had been working on plans of using Anthrax to launch terrorist attacks.

Shukri and Abdinuur have been evading police and were allegedly intending to relocate to Puntland in Somalia to join an ISIS cell in Somalia that is under Sheikh Muumin.

Police intercepted communication indicating that they were travelling to join the Islamic State.

They are linked to another medical intern, Mohammed Abdi Ali, who was arrested in May in connection with planning a biological attack.
