Security agencies have Wednesday evening arrested a terror suspect and recovered a cache of firearms and explosives.

The weapons recovered from the suspect included three AK-47 riffles, 227 rounds of ammunition, seven rocket-propelled grenades, four magazines and four hand grenades.

Police also recovered a metallic IED carrier, soldering wire and several mobile phones.

This comes just a day after reports emerged that six Tanzanians suspected to be on their way to join Al-Shabaab in Somalia were arrested in Garissa on Sunday.

The Tanzanians aged between 20 and 40 were arrested in Dadaab town, from where they were planning to close into Somalia.

They were also in possession of assorted weapons, according to North-eastern Regional Coordinator Mohamud Saleh.
