Tribesman attack village in Kenya; 33 dead: official

NAIROBI, Kenya--Tribesmen attacked a village in southeastern Kenya Monday, torching homes and sparking clashes that killed 33, in the latest round of tit-for-tat ethnic violence to plague the area, officials said.

Eight police officers were among those killed in the vendetta between the Pokomo farming community and their Orma pastoralist neighbours which already left 52 dead last month in Kenya's worst tribal killings in years.

At least 300 members of the Pokomo tribe stormed Kilelengwani, a village in the Tana river delta and near some of the east African country's most idyllic beaches, early on Monday and attacked members of the Orma community.
