Somali group files ICC complaint against Kenyan military
The activist group Somali Rights filed a complaint against the Kenyan military to the International Criminal Court over human rights abuses in the Jubaland region.

Somalia Rights stated,

The suit comes at a time when the President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta already faces crimes against humanity for his role in killing hundreds of his own Kenyan citizens. It also follows recent United Nations Security Council reports that implicate Kenyan Defense Forces in Somalia of crimes against humanity such as massacre, sexual violence, and torture in contradiction of international humanitarian and human rights laws and disregarding the UN Security Council ban on charcoal exports thereby promoting an illegal trade that funds the activities of the terror group Al Shabab.
