Kenya accuses UN staff in Dadaab refugee camp of aiding al-Shabaab terrorists

Kenya’s interior minister has suggested United Nations staff working with refugees in the country’s massive Dadaab camp are “facilitating terrorist activities”.

Joseph Nkaissery, the secretary for internal security, hinted that some employees of the UN’s refugee agency, the UNHCR, might face arrest for either direct involvement in planning terror attacks or failing to act against those planning them.

“We are very concerned about the alleged involvement or complacency of some UNHCR personnel, who facilitate terrorist activities in this country,” he told a meeting of the UNHCR in Switzerland.
