Al-Shabab has been intensifying attacks in Kenya

The Kenyan government has released a list of the 10 most wanted and deadly Al Shabaab terror suspects.

The government says the suspects, who have a bounty of Kshs2 million each on their heads, were involved in attacks at Mpeketoni and at the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) bases in Lamu.

According to media reports Mohamed Ali Mohamed, Somali citizen Abdi Fatah Abubakar and Suleiman Mohamed Awadh are wanted for his participation in the 2014 Mpeketoni attacks, while Issa Abdalla Ahmed is wanted for disappearing from his home in Malindi and joining Al Shabaab insurgents.

Over the past few years Kenya has been hit by a wave of terror attacks occasioned by the Al Shabaab, the most notable being the July 2013 attack on the Westgate Mall where 67 shoppers were killed and the April 2015 attack on the Garissa University where 147 students were killed.
