Kenya: Officers Wounded in Samburu Attack Due for Surgery

Two officers admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital after a bandit attack in Samburu will be undergoing surgery this morning to remove bullets lodged in their bodies.

The two are amongst nine officers wounded following an attack by cattle rustlers in Baragoi, Samburu on Saturday. Twenty three policemen were confirmed dead yesterday after the attack by cattle rustlers.

The policemen were ambushed by raiders after they responded to cries for help from the villagers and went in pursuit of the cattle rustlers.
