    Kenya has ordered all refugees in the country to one of two refugee camps in, Dadaab and Kakuma, and has halted the registration of all other refugees in the country. The move comes after intelligence information surfaced that armed Somali group, al-Shabab has been offering a bounty for the killing of security officials in the country - as well as a rise in a spate of attacks in major cities of the country. This drastic move is hoped to curb the attacks but it will also place greater strain of the refugee camps, which are already over capacity with more than 500,000 people in Dadaab.
