Kenya will graduate next week a military unit trained to handle chemical and biological weapons in an effort to boost the country's counter-terrorism abilities, Kenya's Daily Nation reported Monday (June 10th).
\"Through the support of the US government, Kenya has made a stride in training a military unit, for the first time in Africa, capable of handling chemical and biological weapons, which have become a terrorism threat,\" said Colonel Isaac Muchendu, director of the Kenya Rapid Deployment Exercise.
Trainees include members of the Africa Standby Force, an African Union force that remains prepared to intervene in the event of large-scale violence.
