NAIROBI - Somalia's al Qaida-linked rebels have extensive funding, recruiting and training networks within neighboring Kenya, and have also established connections with jihadist groups across the continent, according to a UN report.

A UN Monitoring Group report on Somalia and Eritrea obtained by Reuters said non-Somali Kenyan nationals now constitute the largest and most organized non-Somali entity within the al Shabaab group.

Al Shabaab has been waging an insurgency against the UN-backed government in Somalia since 2007. It controls large parts of southern and central Somalia, as well as chunks of the capital, Mogadishu.
