Police said gunmen, apparently part of the same group that massacred close to 50 people in the town of Mpeketoni overnight Sunday, attacked a village in the same region overnight on Monday and left 10 dead.

Kenyan police spokeswoman Zipporah Mboroki confirmed an attack had occurred overnight, although local police and a county official said there were at least 10 dead.
