More than a dozen people have died in two simultaneous attacks on the Kenyan coast. The identity of the perpetrators remains unclear, but al-Shabab militants from Somalia have carried out other attacks in the area.
The Kenyan Red Cross said on Sunday that at least 13 people died in two separate gun attacks overnight on Saturday.
In a statement on Twitter, the Red Cross said gunmen killed four people in the trading center of Hindi in the district of Lamu, and that nine more people were killed in another attack in the Gamba area of Tana River county.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The attack in Hindi took place in the coastal region where some 65 people were killed in two attacks last month. Islamist al-Shabab insurgents from neighboring Somalia claimed responsibility for those attacks, one of which occured in the town of Mpeketoni and the other in a nearby village.
Kenya has seen a spate of gun and explosive attacks since deploying its troops to Somalia in October 2011 to fight the al Qaeda-linked group.
