Kenya:Suspected Al-Shabab members appear in court

Fourteen suspected Al-Shabab operatives appeared in a Nairobi court Tuesday afternoon in Kenya.

Several of them are reportedly linked to the Garissa University massacre in which 148 students were killed last Thursday.

Al-Shabab, a militant Islamist group based in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the attack – saying it had been a reprisal for Kenya sending troops into Somalia.

The 14 suspects were seated in a Nairobi courtroom, handcuffed, while listening to state council outline the various offenses.

The judge then ordered the men held in police custody while the investigation continues.
