Dozens slaughtered in attacks in Kenya

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- At least 71 people were killed in two attacks, the first by Ethiopian bandits on a remote village in northern Kenya and the second by Kenyan tribesmen apparently in revenge, police said Wednesday.

No arrests have been made in either attack.

Ethiopian bandits attacked villagers in the Turbi area, a remote part of Kenya 342 miles northeast of the capital, Nairobi, killing 45 people, many of them children, in a raid Tuesday, police spokesman Jaspher Ombati said. At least 18 people were injured, he said.

The Roman Catholic Information Service, however, said at least 52 local residents were killed in the attack, and a Kenya Red Cross official said aid workers were sent to the area to determine the number of victims and their needs.

The assailants hacked to death and slashed the throats of at least two dozen children at a boarding school, while most of the adult victims were shot, medical workers said at Wilson Airport in Nairobi, where 10 critically injured victims were flown for treatment.

The attackers lingered all day Tuesday, shooting and hacking anyone on sight, because security forces were slow to respond, according to the Catholic Information Service.

Kenyan security forces pursued the bandits, who numbered between 300 and 500, killed 16 of them and recovered 5,000 sheep, 200 cattle, and other livestock, the deputy Eastern Province police chief, Gerald Oluoch, said in a police report seen by The Associated Press.

Wednesday, an unspecified number of men thought to be from the Garba tribe killed 10 people in full view of the Italian Roman Catholic priest who was driving them to a seminar in Marsabit, 256 miles northeast of Nairobi, Ombati said.

The Rev. Aldrin J. Anito was stopped on a road blocked by stones near a trading center, where the men asked to what tribe the passengers belonged, Ombati said.

The passengers -- which included children younger than 10 -- were killed after they were identified as members of the Borana tribe, Ombati said.

The priest's "pleas to the crowd to spare the lives of the 10 people went unheeded," Ombati said. The priest was unharmed.

Ombati said that security forces are treating the attack as an act of revenge.

But Said Wabera, a Garba from the northern Marsabit district, where the attacks occurred, said that the second attack could have been provoked by the Ethiopian bandits being Boranas from across the border.

Boranas and Garbas live both in Ethiopia and Kenya.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
