German Islamist in Kenya on the run: Police:

Kenyan police said Friday they are still searching for a German man wanted for questioning over links with Somalia’s Al-Qaeda affiliated Shebab rebels.
Kenyan police last weekend began a hunt for Bonn-born Ahmed Mueller, saying he could have “information about Shebab activities being prepared.”
On Wednesday, police said they had arrested a man who they believed was the “German terror suspect” but had not formally identified him.
The man turned out to be another German national arrested on drug charges.
“It was not Mueller who was arrested, we are still looking for Mueller,” a senior police source said Friday.
Since Kenya sent forces into southern Somalia in October to fight the Shebab it has been hit by retaliatory attacks.
Kenyan police have warned that Mueller “is possibly armed” and is believed to also go by the names Andreas Martin Mueller and Abu Nusaibah.
