At least 20 killed in clan violence

29 August 2013, 08:05

Marsabit - Marsabit County governor says at least 20 people were killed in violent clashes among rival clans in North Eastern.

Yattani, said Wednesday that automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades were used in clashes between the Borana and Gabbra clans.

According to him, the two groups as well as a third —the Burji— have recently been fighting over water and pasture for their cattle.

Police spokesman Gatiria Mboroki said some houses were apparently set on fire but gave no death toll.

Illegal guns are smuggled into the country through porous borders, especially from Somalia, despite the stringent gun control laws in the country.
