Cardiff teenager arrested in Kenya 'brainwashed'


The father of one of two teenagers from Cardiff arrested over possible links to a Somali Islamist insurgent group has told the BBC his son has been brainwashed.

Both men were apprehended near the Kenyan-Somali border on Sunday and will be deported on Wednesday.

Their families say they are thankful they are both safe and well after going missing from their homes in Cardiff.
