A Somali refugee woman was last evening shot and killed in Ifo refugee camp, one of the camps forming the larger Dadaab refugee complex, in northern Kenya near the border with Somalia.

The woman identified as Quresho Hussein Rage was reportedly a member of the area security committee and was killed by gunmen armed with pistols on Tuesday evening. The gunmen immediately fled the scene of the crime.

Police confirmed the incident and said they launched investigations into the killing.

It is yet known the reason behind her killing-but locals suspect that she was killed due to her role in Kenyan efforts to restore law and order in the volatile refugee camp.

The area has seen a wave of organised crimes and grenade attacks since last October when Kenyan forces crossed the border into Somalia in pursuit of Al-Shabaab militant group.
