GARISSA - Two Kenyan police officers were shot dead
and their rifles stolen on Sunday in the northern town of Garissa near the
border with Somalia, police said.
The killings came hours after a
nine-year-old boy was killed in the capital Nairobi by a grenade attack on a
church by suspected sympathizers of Somali al Shabaab rebels and days after
Kenyan troops led an offensive against the insurgents in their last stronghold
