Cyber Crime Reports Link Four Kenyan Women to International Terrorists

Four women accused in Kenya of links with terror groups were found in possession of contacts belonging to international jihadists on their devices.

New evidence received from the Cyber Crime indicates that the suspects have contacts from Sri Lanka, Canada, United States, United Arab Emirate, Qatar, Turkey, Sudan, Tanzania and Rwanda.

And intelligence retrieved from the laptop recovered from the accused has the contacts of a wanted criminal, Mr Shwaib Mubarak, who is linked to the Al Shabaab.

Ms Ummulkheir Sadri Abdalla, Ms Khadija Abubakar Abdulkadir, Ms Maryam Said Aboud and Ms Halima Adan were arrested at the El-Wak border point in Mandera County while trying to sneak into Somalia to allegedly join Al-Shabaab.

Pictures retrieved from the laptop contained materials promoting jihadism and the killing of non-believers.

Mobile phones of the accused are still undergoing forensic analysis in connection with the Westgate Mall and Garissa University College attacks, which left 67 and 147 people dead respectively.

The court will probably review its earlier ruling that granted the accused bail on bond of Sh500,000 each.

There is a possibility that in the occasion that the accused are released on bond, they could escape o join one of the many terror groups across the globe.
