Prime Minister David Cameron predicted there would be "ups and downs" in Britain's bid to renegotiate its relationship with the European Union as he arrived at a summit in Riga Friday. "There will be lots of noise, lots of ups and downs along the way," he said, while voicing "determination" to secure EU reforms ahead of a referendum by the end of 2017 on a possible British exit. "It's in Britain's interest that this is a success," Cameron added on arrival at the summit between leaders of the EU and six former Soviet states.
Al Shabaab militants attacked a village in the northeastern Kenyan county of Garissa, the ministry of interior said on Friday. The Somalia-based al Shabaab group, which has carried out frequent attacks in Kenya in recent years to try to force Nairobi to pull its troops out of Somalia, struck a university in the same area last month, killing 148 people. A ministry statement said the militants entered Yumbis village, 70 km (45 miles) north of Garissa town, but were driven back.
