Description

Kenya has agreed to delay the closure of the Dadaab refugee camp, to give residents more time to find new homes. The government had vowed to shut Dadaab camp this month, saying it was being used by Islamist militants from neighbouring Somalia, who have launched a string of attacks on Kenyan soil. Rights groups have, however, criticised the decision, saying it would hurt Somalis fleeing violence and poverty, and accused Nairobi of forcibly sending people back to a war zone. The Kenyan government dismisses that allegation. According to Kenya's ministry of Internal Security, the camp is home to about 250,000 people.
