The hard-line group, which controls much of southern Somalia, has denied carrying out any abductions, and has warned of attacks in Kenya unless the troops withdraw.
Is Kenya right to pursue al-Shabab in Somalia? Should Kenya have tackled the attacks by Al Shabaab differently? Do other African governments support or oppose Kenya's actions?
