Uneasiness over Kenyan offensive in Somalia

After recent grenade attacks in Kenya, questions are being asked over the wisdom to hunt down al-Shabab.

    Almost a month has passed since Kenya launched an offensive into Somalia to hunt down al-Shabab fighters.

    With little public discussion over the decision to invade Somalia, there is a growing sense of unease about whether the country is ready for the consequences of a war with the Islamist group.

    The Kenyan public appear to be behind the military operation, but after a spate of grenade attacks and raids people are beginning to question whether the security forces can protect the home front.

    And there is mounting pressure on Kenya's own large population of Somalis.
