MOMBASA, Kenya - The spokesman of a banned Kenyan coastal separatist movement has been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the killing of nine policemen who were hacked to death on election day.

The officers were killed by up to 200 masked men wearing trademark red bandanas and wielding machetes in two separate attacks during what was otherwise a largely peaceful election on March 4.

The authorities accuse the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) of trying to disrupt the vote and organising attacks that left 15 people dead. Three MRC members were charged on Tuesday with murdering four police officers on the same day.
