Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has visited the world’s biggest refugee camp, Dadaab, situated in northern Kenya. He met with Somali refugees amid concerns over planned closure of the camp. President Mohamud also inspected living conditions there, during his tour. The visit to Dadaab is the first by a sitting Somali President. In early May, Kenya announced a taskforce expected to oversee the repatriation of Somalis in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee complexes, citing national security concerns. However, the Somali government warned it foresees more terror attacks should Dadaab be closed against the wishes of refugees, due to the volatile situation in Somalia.
