Gunmen attack bars in northeast Kenya, at least 2 dead

GARISSA, Kenya - At least two people were killed when gunmen sprayed bullets at New Year revelers at two bars in northeastern Kenya on Sunday, a witness and police said, the latest in a wave of attacks near the border with Somalia.
A worker at one of the pubs in Garissa town said gunmen approached in a vehicle and fired at the bars then drove away.
"The guys fired from the vehicle. They first shot the guard, (and then) shot more bullets at those who tried to leave and those who were at the entrance," said the witness who declined to be named.
North Eastern provincial police commander Leo Nyongesa said two people had been confirmed dead, adding security forces were still gathering information on the number of wounded.
