Two Kenyan men have been charged being members of Somalia's hardline Al Shabaab militia, against whom it launched an offensive nearly two weeks ago in the south of the war-torn country.
Omar Muchiri and Stephen Macharia, both Kenyans, however denied the charges.
They also denied being accomplices of fellow Kenyan Elgiva Bwire Oliacha, who confessed on Wednesday to being a member of the extremist Shabaab insurgents and sentenced into life imprisonment and 15 year.
All three were arrested this week as Kenyan police stepped up security in the wake of Shabaab threats to attack the country in retaliation for Nairobi's military offensive in southern Somalia.
The Al-Qaeda-linked group on Thursday called on Kenyan sympathizers to launch attacks against Nairobi, which was this week rocked by two grenade blasts that killed one person and wounded dozens of others.
Muchiri and Macharia were detained pending the resumption of their case on November 4th, 2011.
Kenyan troops rolled into Shabaab-controlled southern Somalia on October 16 to fight the insurgents it accuses of a series of kidnappings and attacks on its territory.
Kenya's offensive followed the kidnapping of four European women from its soil, all who are believed to have been taken to Somalia by their abductors.
