Somalis fear Kenya mall siege backlash

Somalis in Kenya fear that harassment may increase in wake of the deadly attack on Nairobi mall by al-Shabab.

    As Kenya mourns the victims of the Nairobi mall seige, members of the country’s Somali community say they are worried there will be a backlash against them.

    They are concerned the harassment might come from either members of the public or the Kenya authorities who have often been accused of targeting ethnic Somalis in security operations.

    Memories are still fresh of the mobs that targeted Somali homes and shops in Nairobi last November after a suspected al-Shabab attack on a minibus killed nine people
