A female student at the Kenyatta University in Kenya is facing charges of joining ISIL. Gloria Kavaya Iqra, a first-year microbiology student, allegedly converted to Islam last year and was suspected to have undergone radicalisation. Reports say that an unidentified agency promised to finance her studies at the International University of Africa in Sudan. The court ruled on Monday that she remain in custody until a bond of 5,000 US dollars was paid. Kavaya was arrested just a few days after police bust a ring of medical interns who were allegedly planning a biological attack on Kenya using anthrax. Police believe a man named Mohammed Abdi Ali is behind the ISIL recruitment drive. They accuse him of targeting students, luring them with money and promises of a better life, and helping them to secretly leave for Libya and Syria where they'd then become ISIL fighters.
