Ambush in Kenya Kills at Least Eleven People.

Police said at least eleven people have been killed by cattle rustlers during an ambush in northern Kenya.

Eight officers, two civilians and a local chief are said to be among the victims of the violence in Turkana County over the weekend.

Members of the National Police Service were pursuing bandits who had earlier raided a village and stolen livestock.

Clashes over livestock and water are common in the area, which is also facing a worsening climate, as the area has been one of the hardest hit in one of the harshest droughts East Africa has seen in four decades.
