News PhotoBurnt,Conflict,Horizontal,Hut,Kenya,Mosque,VillagePhotographer Collection: AFP 2012 AFPA mosque stands by a burnt out hut in Kilelengwani village in the Tana river Delta on September 12, 2012. The red cross claim 8 children were slaughtered by members of the Pokomo tribe during an attack by 300 tribesmen on the village which left 38 people dead, 167 houses burnt to the ground, and scores of slaughtered cattle. Some women and children survived the attack by hiding in the mosque. The Kenyan government has authorised a deployment of 1,300 General Service Unit (GSU) officers, the Kenyan specialist riot police squad, in the area and a dusk to dawn curfew, after 112 people were killed in clashes between the Pokomo and Orma tribes since late August 2012.
