The armed group al-Shabab continues to sow chaos in Somalia and Kenya, as evidenced by the latest attack which left six dead just a kilometre from the Somali border.

Five years since Kenya first crossed the Somali border to root out al-Shabab fighters, attacks have seemingly increased.

In this week's Headliner, Mehdi Hasan asks Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed about her country's achievements against the armed group and if the intervention has backfired.

Amina Mohamed also discusses accusations about the treatment of ethnic Somalis and refugees in the country. Kenya, which has taken more than half a million refugees, hosts one of the largest refugee populations in the world.

We also discuss her government's successes and Kenya's experience with the International Criminal Court.

Editor's note: This interview was recorded before the latest al-Shabab attack in Kenya on October 6, 2016.
