Gunmen attack bars in northeast Kenya, 5 dead

GARISSA - Gunmen sprayed bullets at New Year revelers in two bars in northeastern Kenya on Sunday, killing five people, a witness and police said, the latest in a wave of attacks near the border with Somalia.
Kenyan security forces suspect al-Shabaab Islamist rebels, who are fighting the Western-backed government in Somalia, are also behind a string of deadly strikes in the border region.
