  • Description

    A RAF BEVERLEY ON SATURDAY FLEW A PLATOON OF THE KENYA AFRICAN RILES FORM NAIROBI TO THE NORTH-EAST REGION WHERE LAW AND ORDER IS THREATENED. A GOVERNMENT STATEMENT, IN REPORTING THIS, SPOKE OF RECENT ATTACKS ON ARMY AND POLICE IN THE AREA.

    OTHER UNITS OF THE KENYA AFRICAN RIFLES HAVE GONE OVERLAND TO REINFORCE SECURITY FORCES ALREADY THERE. IN ONE WEEK SOMALI INTRUDERS HAVE MADE SIX RADIOS ON POLICE POSTS. THEY WERE DRIVEN OFF BY HEAVY SMALL ARMS FIRE.

    (THE RAIDS ARE BELIEVED TO BE INSPIRED BY A MOVEMENT WHICH SEEKS THE INCORPORATION OF KENYA'S NORTHERN FRONTIER DISTRICT INTO THE SOMALI REPUBLIC. SOMALI SETTLERS IN THIS DISTRICT VASTLY OUTNUMBER OTHER INDIGENOUS TRIBES.)
