A Kenyan High Court has stopped the government from closing the world's largest refugee camp. Kenya's government wanted to close the Dadaab camp and send 260,000 refugees back to Somalia. The court decided this was wrong. A judge said the government was targeting Somali refugees, and that was discrimination. Kenya wanted to close the camp because of security. It said terrorist attacks by a Somalia-based group were planned in the camp.
Dadaab was started in 1992 to help people escaping from Somalia's civil war. When Kenya's government said it would close the camp, human rights groups worried that sending back refugees to Somalia would create a humanitarian crisis. The group Amnesty International was happy with the court's decision and called it a "historic day". It said a quarter of a million refugees were at risk of serious human rights abuses if they returned to Somalia.
