Mombasa court sentences terror suspect to 22 years in jail

by Joy Nabukewa MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- A Kenyan court on Friday sentenced a key terror suspect to 22 years in prison over a foiled Al-Shabaab attack in 2014 in the coastal city of Mombasa.

Abdiaziz Abdullahi was convicted by Mombasa Magistrate Court on five counts including illegal possession of six hand grenades, an AK-47 rifle and 270 bullets.

Police said Abdullahi was found with a vehicle loaded with explosives, which was later detonated by anti-terrorism police officers

Senior Principal Magistrate Francis Kyambia said Abdullahi deserved the punishment considering the seriousness of the offenses.

Abdullahi was charged alongside Isaak Noor who was acquitted after the prosecution failed to link him to the crimes.

According to police sources, the two were being monitored after Kenyan security agencies were tipped over an impending terror attack by U.S. Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI).
