NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 5 – The Interior Ministry has re-published photos of 11 wanted terror suspects and renewed its appeal for public help in tracking them down.

The 11 mentioned on the ministry’s Twitter handle and described as dangerous are Abdalla Muumin Abdalla, Abdalla Siraj Marumu, Abdifatar Abubakar Abdi, Isaa Abdalla Ahmed and Anwar Yogan Mok.

Others in the list include Suleiman Muhamed, Hussein Said, Mohamed Ali Ahmed, Omar Patroba Juma, Abdikadir Abubakar and Ismael Mohamed Shosi.

The ministry has encouraged the public to be on the lookout and call police hotlines, 020-219 91 51 or 0702-432877/ 999 or 112 should they see any of the suspects.

The appeal comes as the authorities launched a massive manhunt for three wanted terror suspects who escaped a police raid in Majengo, Mombasa on Monday.

Mombasa police boss Francis Wanjohi disclosed that the officers recovered two rifles, G3 and M16 rifle, 345 bullets and 15 mobile phones from the house.

The three escaped when detectives from the Anti Terrorism Police Unit and the Recce squad raided the house.

Intelligence reports indicate that three were planning a terrorist attack in Mombasa and are part of gang believed to be behind past terrorist attacks in Lamu and Mombasa.
