There was no immediate claim of responsibility
At least ten Kenyan police were killed when their vehicle struck a homemade bomb near the border with Somalia on Saturday, according to a police report seen by Reuters.
Police believe the device, for which no one immediately claimed responsibility, was planted by Islamist group Al Shabaab, the report said.
