Police thwart planned terror attack in Mombasa as suspects flee

Police in Mombasa on Monday foiled a planned terror attack by suspected Al Shabaab militants in Nyali area.
The officers recovered two assault rifles and over two hundred rounds of ammunition that were being used by the suspects.
Unfortunately, the suspects managed to escape.

According to police, the operation was being led by Mahmoud Salim Mohamed of ID No. 30750990 and Hussein Omar Said of ID No. 30229658.

Hussein Omar Said has been in the police list of most wanted criminals and his name and photo were circulated by the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett late last year.

He is suspected of playing a pivotal role in the June 2014 Mpeketoni attack that left close to 60 people dead and hundreds others injured and property worth millions of shillings reduced to ashes.
