NAIROBI - Gunmen killed 36 workers in an attack on a quarry in Kenya's Mandera county, which borders Somalia, Kenyan media reported on Tuesday.

Citizen Television said the 36 workers were killed when suspected al Shabaab militants from Somalia attacked the quarry. The Kenyan Red Cross said the quarry was about 15 km (10 miles) from Mandera town.

Some 28 people were killed in the area last month when al Shabaab militants hijacked a Nairobi-bound bus.
