At least 36 quarry workers have been killed in northern Kenya by suspected Islamic extremists from Somalia, Kenyan police said.

Kenyan police chief David Kimaiyo confirmed the workers were killed in Mandera County, near the border with Somalia.

Other police sources said the workers were ambushed by the gunmen as they slept at the quarry. The non-Muslims were singled out and killed. The police officials said some were shot dead and others were decapitated.

No group has yet claimed responsibility but the attack bears the hallmarks of Somalia’s Islamic militant rebels, al-Shabab.

Al-Shabab attacked a bus in Mandera County last week in which 28 non-Muslims were separated from other passengers and shot dead.
