Al-Shabab Muslim militants have killed 36 non-Muslim quarry workers in the Kenyan town of Mandera, the Euro News website reports today (December 2, 2014).
Residents of the area close to the Somali border say the assailants separated Muslims from non-Muslims before carrying out the killings.
The latest carnage comes after 28 people were shot dead on a bus in the same area last week. Again, non-Muslims were the targets.
The deaths have caused outrage across Kenya and the government is coming under fire for its failure to protect its citizens.
