NAIROBI, Kenya’s Interior Ministry has renewed its appeal for members of the public to help in tracking them down 11 wanted terrorist suspects and published photographs of them on its Twitter handle, describing them as dangerous.

The ministry urged the people to be on the lookout for the suspects and to call police hotlines should they see any of the suspects. The latest appeal Tuesday came as police launched a massive manhunt for two wanted terrorist suspects who escaped a police raid in Majengo area of Mombasa County on Monday.

During the operation Monday afternoon, a G3 rifle, one M-4 rifle and 24 rounds of ammunition were recovered.

Meanwhile, the main suspect in the latest propaganda video by the Daesh terrorist group is thought to be British man, Siddhartha Dhards.

An official source said Dhar was the focus of investigation into the ideo, which purports to show the killing of five men wh0 were accused by Daesh of being spies.

Dhar, also known as Abu Rumaysah, fled Britain in 2014 while on bail.
