MOMBASA, Kenya - Suspected members of Somalia's al Shabaab Islamist group beheaded at least three men overnight in an attack on a Kenyan village, authorities said on Friday, a month after nine were killed in a similar way nearby.
"They were slaughtered. Their heads were cut off from the rest of their bodies," said a police source, asking not to be named.
Police said four bodies had been found at Maleli village in Kenya's coastal county of Lamu. Area county commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo said he was aware of three deaths.
