Two Kenyan MPs have expressed concern after three girls from the Somali community went missing.

Two of the girls have been reported missing since Tuesday and a photo of a wounded girl was shared on social media.

 

A video of another girl saying her abductors wanted up to $50,000 (£36,000) in ransom was also shared online, BBC Somali reported.

MP Yusuf Hassan, representing the Eastleigh district in the capital Nairobi, where the girls are from, termed the disappearances as “kidnappings” and urged the police boss to follow up the investigations.
