Kenya: Islamist terrorists behead 9 men

(Nairobi) Islamist terrorists beheaded nine men in an overnight attack on a village in the Kenyan coastal district of Lamu, police said, days after Somali terrorists killed three policemen in an attack on a nearby village.

Villagers said a group of heavily armed attackers, many of whom appeared to be ethnic Somalis, attacked the villagers at 11:00 pm. They went house to house searching for non-Muslim men and gathered their victims together before beheading them. The attack is close to the village of Pandanguo, where al Shabaab attackers killed three police officers on Wednesday. Al Shabaab has frequently mounted deadly cross-border attacks on Kenyan soil
