Kenyan court halts closure of Kakuma Refugee Camp

Kenya’s high court has temporarily blocked the closure of the two refugee camps, calling it unconstitutional.

On Thursday, the court stayed the closure for 30 days, according to a copy of the court seen by news organizations.

This month Kenya’s minister of interior ordered closure of Kakuma and Daadab Refugee camps and gave UN an ultimatum of seven days. Kenyan government says the camps harbour terrorists who carry out attacks inside Kenya.
