In pictures: Kenya massacre

Policemen look at some of those killed

At least 76 people were killed in a raid in north-eastern Kenya on Tuesday. The Gabras and the Boranas groups have long clashed over water and cattle but even these police officers were shocked by the latest attack.

At least 22 of the dead were children - some slaughtered with machetes and guns in a school. Mamo Duba, 9, lost his mother, father and two siblings in the killings.
