Over 570 people have been displaced after clashes between two communities in Kuria East in a cattle rustling incident over the weekend that left two people dead. Police are yet to arrest any suspect and recover stolen cattle. Red Cross Regional Coordinator Emmanuel Owako says the families have sought refuge at Tharagani and Girigiri chiefs' camps.
