NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya has arrested two British citizens suspected of ties to Somalia's al Qaeda-linked rebels as they crossed the border into the Horn of Africa country, Kenyan police said Tuesday.
"There are two British citizens who were arrested yesterday. We suspect that they are coordinating the activities of al Shabaab ... or maybe they were passing on information to these people," said Charles Owino, deputy police spokesman.
Kenyan and Somali troops launched an offensive Sunday against al Shabaab rebel group in southern Somalia after a string of kidnappings of Westerners in the past few weeks by gunmen thought by Kenya to be linked to the militants.
