Nairobi: Kenya`s anti-terrorism police have launched a manhunt for a German national who sneaked into the east African country to plan terror attacks, a top police official said.

Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere has urged Ahmed Khaled Muller to surrender to the nearest police station for questioning over links with Al-Shabaab, Xinhua reported.

Police believe he could be in possession of information on planned Al-Shabaab criminal activities, Iteere said in a statement on Saturday.

The man uses aliases Andreas Martin Muller and Abu Nusaibah, police said.
Police said Mueller entered the country either illegally or by disguising himself.
A recent grenade attack in Nairobi left at least two people dead and more than 15 others injured. Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on the God`s House of Miracles International Church April 29.
