Over the past year there has been a rise in attacks against churches as well as other places of worship across Kenya, including in Nairobi, Mombasa, Mandera and Wajir. We assess that these attacks are linked to Kenya's military intervention in Somalia and are the actions of a minority seeking to undermine interfaith relations.
