Kenya attacks: Al-Shabab raid village near Mpeketoni

At least 10 people have been killed in a new attack by Islamist militants near Kenya's coastal town of Mpeketoni, local police say.

They say the gunmen raided at least one village overnight. Somalia's al-Shabab group said it had carried out the attack.

At least 48 people died after the al-Qaeda-linked group attacked hotels and a police station in the town on Sunday.

Reporting from Nairobi, the BBC's Dennis Okari says that targeting villages rather than towns marks a shift in al-Shabab's tactics.
