    Kenya's military says it has pushed Somalia-based al-Shabab fighters out of Boni Forest that lies along the border between the two countries.

    The armed group has used the area as a hideout from which to launch attacks.

    But people who've been displaced by the fighting are scared to go back home, fearing attacks by herders living inside the forest.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Witu, southern Kenya.
