More than 10 people died in Marsabit after suspected Ethiopian bandits crossed over into Kenya, lined them up and shot them dead.
The young men were part of a team that responded to a “peace meeting” called after some cattle were stolen in the area.
However, according to one of the victims who managed to escape, the men were ambushed on their way to the meeting.
Before they could reach where the meeting was to take place, some 100 bandits surrounded them and made the 11 men line up.
The bandits would later turn the gun on them killing them one after the other.
In the struggle for water and pasture points between the two communities at the North of Kenya, leaders drawn from Kenya and Ethiopia had organized a meeting to solve the problems.
