NAIROBI, Kenya – The U.N. refugee agency chief says repatriation is the best solution for hundreds of thousands of Somali refugees that Kenya's government says have become a security liability. But Filippo Grandi says Kenya's time frame for the move is "very short" to put in place structures for a safe and voluntary return.

Grandi spoke Monday after visiting the sprawling Dadaab camp. Kenya says 328,000 Somali refugees there must go home by November.
