Almost a month after Kenya sent its troops over the border into Somalia, there is a growing sense of unease about whether the country is ready for the consequences of a war with the Islamist group al- Shabaab.

The Kenyan public seems to be behind the military operation, but after a spate of grenade attacks and raids, people are beginning to question whether the security forces can protect the home-front.

And there is mounting pressure on Kenya's own large population of Somalis.
