WORK ON KENYA-SOMALIA BORDER WALL SUSPENDED

NAIROBI– Kenya has suspended construction of a 700-kilometre border wall after confrontations between security officers and people from a nearby Somali town.

Locals say the partially-built wall has helped prevent al-Shabab fighters from crossing into Kenya.

Hundreds of people have died in attacks by the armed group, but other areas remain unsafe.
