The officers were ambushed as they attempted to recover stolen cattle. Internal Security Minister Katoo ole Metito vowed to bring those responsible to justice.

A police spokesperson has told the BBC that 29 officers were killed in Baragoi, along with three of the attackers. The local Samburu and Turkana communities often steal cattle from each other, and clash over grazing rights and access to water points. A similar attack, in which 12 people were killed, took place nearby two weeks ago, Kenyan media report. (BBC)
