Kenya tribe uprooted by al-Shabab conflict

Communities displaced as Somalia-based armed group uses tribe's forest area on the border as hideout from Kenyan army.

    For one tribe in Kenya, it has been their home for centuries.

    But now a forest on the border with Somalia has become a main hideout for fighters from al-Shabab, the Somalia-based armed group that says it is at war with the Kenyan government.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from the Boni National Reserve, on how the conflict is uprooting tribal communities.
