ISIOLO - At least four people have been killed by suspected Ethiopian raiders at a remote Kenyan village on the border with Ethiopia, police and the local member of parliament said on Sunday.

The regional police commander for Kenya's Eastern province, Marcus Ochola, blamed the killings in Adi village in Moyale district on fighting between the Garre and Oromia communities inside Ethiopia, which "spilled into our country."

"We are in touch with officials on the other side, Ethiopia. We have asked them to help contain this crisis, stop the killing which started inside Ethiopia," Ochola told Reuters.

Officials on the Ethiopian side were not immediately available for comment.
