FBI arrest three Kenyans in US over links to Isis

Three Kenyans living in the United States have been arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and accused of plotting to give material help to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (Isis).

The suspects, Muse Abdikadir Muse, Mohamud Abdikadir Muse and Mohamed Salat Haji were arrested in Lansing, Michigan, on Monday.

According to investigators, Muse Abdikadir Muse had purchased an air ticket to Somalia from Grand Rapids, where he was apprehended.

A statement by the examiners said Mohamud and Haji helped him purchase the tickets, and furthermore drove him to the air terminal.

“He was checking in for a trip to Mogadishu, Somalia, when he was apprehended,” FBI said in on Tuesday. It isn’t yet clear whether the Muses are connected.

As indicated by the FBI, the three recorded videos vowing loyalty to Isis and communicated their craving “to slaughter non-adherents, and even to possibly utilize a vehicle to rundown non-believers in the USA.”

The suspects went under police watch in April, 2016, when Mohamud Muse shared a post  on his Facebook suggesting that he upheld Isis.

Their arrest came barely a week after the DusitD2 complex attack in Nairobi, in which 21 people died when five terrorists opened fire on people in a hotel, moments after a suicide bomber detonated a bomb near the hotel in the serene Riverside area.
Examinations concerning the assault have uncovered that few Kenyans, including a couple, were included arranging and executing the assault.
