Kenyan police arrested two terror suspects who are thought to have been planning an attack on an airport in the country’s Rift Valley province.
According to local Daily Nation newspaper, the two, one said to be a foreign national, were arrested near the Eldoret International Airport on Saturday evening by a team of detectives drawn from Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) and the Special Services Unit (SSU).
The Department of Criminal Investigation said the operatives recovered assorted explosives, detonators, detonating cords, safety fuses and boosters.
Authorities said investigations into the matter were underway.
Kenya has suffered a number of terror attacks over the past two decades, most of which were claimed by Somalia-based al-Shabaab jihadist group.
Kenyan Defence Force troops are deployed in Somalia in efforts to crush the militant group and deter it from launching attacks in the East African region.
