Spate of kidnappings in Kenya continues

Two Spanish aid workers kidnapped from Kenya’s Dadaab refugee camp are believed to have been taken across the border into lawless Somalia, police said Friday. The two women, working as logisticians for the aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF, Doctors Without Borders), were seized Thursday by gunmen who, police say, were Somali Islamist Shebab rebels. “We have indications that they are on the other side (of the border),” regional police chief Leo Nyongesa told AFP. Fierce fighting was reported in a town just inside Somalia on Thursday between Al-Qaeda linked Shebab militants and other rival Somali militia groups. Despite the likelihood that the kidnappers are now in Somalia, police said they would continue their search in Kenya on Friday with aerial support.
