MOMBASA, Kenya - Attackers killed 32 villagers and burnt more than 150 houses in Kenya's coastal region on Monday, the Red Cross said, the latest tit-for-tat attack in a long festering dispute between communities over land and water.

"There was a fresh attack in the Tana Delta this morning. As for now we have established 32 people are dead," Abbas Gullet, head of the Kenyan Red Cross, told Reuters.
