Gunmen killed at least 36 people in northern Kenya early Tuesday, in an attack attributed to the Islamist terrorist group al-Shabaab, a news report said.

The victims were all non-Muslims, working in a quarry in Mandera county, the Kenyan outlet Daily Nation reported.

Muslim workers were spared, survivors were quoted as saying.

Most of the victims were shot in the head, with some beheaded, the report said.

The attackers struck around 1 am (2200 Monday GMT) while the workers were sleeping, police were quoted as saying.

Late Monday, three men with assault rifles attacked a club in the town of Wajir, killing one and injuring 13.

On November 22, 28 people were killed when al-Shabaab militants from Somalia hijacked a bus in Mandera, and shot dead passengers who failed to read verses of the Koran.

Kenyan security forces pursued the militants over the border with Somalia, killing more than 100, authorities said.

  • Many of the 60 bus passengers were Kenyan government officials, police officers, health workers and teachers.
