Anti-terrorism police in Malindi have arrested a doctor over claims that he has links to the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The doctor, who works at Malindi sub-county general hospital, was arrested at his house in sea breeze on friday morning. Police claimed the 35-year-old medic is part of a network suspected of planning attacks in the country. Malindi OCPD Matawa Muchangi said police, in a joint operation, raided the suspect’s home at 2am. He said police found terrorism-related materials, which he did not disclose to avoid interfering with investigations.
