Four rhinos killed in Kenya's worst poaching attack in years

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Two armed gangs killed four rhinos for their horns in rural Kenya this week in possibly the worst rhino poaching incident in the country in more than 25 years, the spokesman for Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) said on Friday. Poaching across sub-Saharan Africa is on the rise as armed criminal gangs kill elephants for tusks and rhinos for horns, usually to be shipped to Asia for use in ornaments and medicines. #facebook #Politics #United States #India #Arabic #Russia #markets #Latin America #Kenya

Police say they have deployed 15,000 officers to ensure the rally passes off peacefully, with the country already on high alert fearing attacks by Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab gunmen, who have vowed revenge for Kenya's military presence in Somalia. #Terrorism #Al-Qaeda #NewsTracker #Somalia #Kenya #Al Shebab #Mombasa Republican Council

Gunmen kill at least 29 in latest raids on Kenyan coast

MOMBASA Kenya (Reuters) - Gunmen killed at least 29 people in raids on two coastal areas of Kenya, the latest in a series of attacks claimed by Somali Islamists who have vowed to drive Kenyan forces out of Somalia, although a police officer cast doubt on their role. The Interior Ministry said one attack killed nine in the trading town of Hindi in Lamu County, the same district where about 65 people were killed by gunmen last month. Another was further south in the Gamba area, where 20 died #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #Kenya #Mexico

Kenya gang rape trial that triggered protests, petition begins

NAIROBI (Reuters) - The trial of a boy accused of being in a gang that raped a girl began in Kenya on Tuesday after months of campaigning by rights groups seeking justice for the teenager who suffered a broken back when she was dumped in a latrine pit after the attack. Hundreds of people marched to the office of the head of the police in the capital Nairobi last year after officers initially just made the suspects cut the grass at a police compound. The protesters carried placards including "Slashing grass is not a punishment for rape", as well as hanging underwear on the padlocked gate #United States #India #Business #France #Arabic #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Kenya #opinion
