Kenyan move leaves Somali journalists fearful

Border camps where refugees have been ordered to go could be harbouring same al-Shabab fighters from whom they fled.

    Kenya's decision to order all Somali refugees back to border camps has left a large number of Somali journalists fearing for their lives.

    Somalia is one of the world's most dangerous places to be a reporter, and many of its journalists have fled to neighbouring Kenya in search of a safer life.

    They say the camps have al-Shabab fighters present and could lead to them facing the same people they fled from.
