16 killed in tribal violence in remote region of Kenya, Red Cross says

Kenya's Red Cross says that at least 16 people were killed and more than 20 wounded in Kenya's north during inter-clan clashes.

The violence on Sunday took place in Mandera County at a camp that hosts internally displaced people. Violence has been ongoing for three days between ethnic Somali clans.

Adan Keynan, a member of parliament, said the government must send more police to stem the violence.

A police officer blamed the violence on politics. One clan feels it was left out of elective posts after Kenya's March election.
