A Kenyan official says a German man is sought for questioning about the activities of an al-Qaida-linked militia group.

Police spokesman Eric Kiraithe said in a statement Saturday that Ahmed Khaled Mueller is wanted for questioning over the criminal activities of the Somalia-based al-Shabab militia.

He says Mueller may be armed and goes by the aliases Andreas Martin Muller and Abu Nusaibah. Kiraithe says Mueller may have entered the country illegally.

Al-Shabab, Somalia's most dangerous insurgent group, has threatened to bomb Kenya for sending troops into Somalia.

Kenya's government says the military incursion into Somalia was a reaction to the threat posed by al-Shabab whom it blamed for a wave of attacks and kidnappings on Kenyan soil.
