Tension is still high along the Kenya-Ethiopia border in Sololo, Marsabit after suspected militiamen attacked security officers who had arrested one of their members.

According to witnesses, the suspect, believed to be a member of the Oromo Liberation Front, had been arrested at a police barrier along the Marsabit-Moyale highway on Wednesday afternoon and was being transported from Sololo to Moyale.

The incident led to security officers aborting the mission and returning the suspect to Sololo Police Station where they sought help from the nearby GSU and AP camps.
