Deadly raid comes against backdrop of hostilities between Islamist extremists al-Shabaab and Kenyan government

At least 36 people are feared dead after gunmen staged an attack on a quarry in north-east Kenya, according to the Red Cross.

The attack took place over Monday night 10 miles (16km) from the remote town of Mandera and close to the dangerous border with Somalia, in the same area where the al-Shabaab group has carried out a string of raids.

Assailants reportedly sprayed gunfire at tents where the workers were sleeping. “Our team is on the ground undertaking assessments of the attack,” Red Cross Kenya said on Tuesday.
