The police said  they have been instructed to look out for people of Somali origin who reside in the area without official identification.

The officers said the exercise is not meant to discriminate anyone but is done in good faith for the interest of the security of all Kenyans.

By yesterday midday police at the Bahati-Eastleigh road block said they had arrested more than 20 people including four Kenyans who were going to the estate without official identification documents.

The officers vowed to ensure that security is restored in the area.

More than 1,000 youths have been arrested in a police swoop.

They are expected to help with information that may lead to the arrest of the master minds of the grenade attacks in the area.
