Somalia's Islamist al-Shabab militants are recruiting heavily in north-eastern Kenya.

The recruitment marks a new tactic for al-Shabab, underscoring fears voiced by Kenyan intelligence services and MPs.

In one town alone, 26 young men whose disappearance was reported to police because they were suspected to have joined the militants.

Al-Shabab attacked a Kenyan university two weeks ago, killing 150 people.

The attack at Garissa was the deadliest yet on Kenyan soil by the militants.
