AFP - At least 48 Kenyans were hacked or burnt to death in ethnic clashes between two rival groups, the worst single attack since deadly post-election violence four years ago, police said Wednesday.
"It is a very bad incident.... They include 31 women, 11 children and six men," regional deputy police chief Joseph Kitur said of the attack, which took place late Tuesday between the Pokomo and Orma peoples in the rural Tana River district.
Kitur said "34 were hacked to death and 14 others were burnt to death," while several huts were torched after a gang of men launched the attack, the latest in a long history of bitter clashes between the rival groups in the remote area of Kenya.

More Obama meddling.
No information on religion. Was there any roll - the usual question.
Make that role.
Obama is trying out his plans for America in a country where he is unlikely to be criticized.
Farmers vs Cattlemen
Nothing gets out the stains of a Society, like a good ethnic cleansing!
Now with extra Mau-Mau.
Godfrey, this sounds like something out of “Jungle Jim!”...only a lot worse, of course. My God.
I hope George Obama is OK.
This has been going on for thousands of years in Africa and among native americans... Them “indians” were not tree huggers.. but hoodrats.. tribal gangs..
If Obama and Holder thought they could get away with it they would have their brownshirts do the same to conservatives here in America.
In whicn part of Chicago is Kenya? Kind of sounds like Chicago.
Their boy wonder was on the links while this was happening.
Mau Mau was a terrorist, marxist, anti-colonial uprising that was remarkable in it's violence.
The outdoor writer Robert Ruark wrote two books about it, "Something of Value" and "Uhuru", which got him banned from Kenya, which he loved dearly. Although they are novels, they draw heavily on real life, showing much about the make-up of O'grandpa and O'daddy.
Mau Mau was extreme tribalism extended into the political world, but the underlying brutality has, and always will, been a fact of everyday life in Africa.
In America, Kenyans will use 1.5 billion hollow points.
Interesting. If Obama had a son he would look like everyone involved. On both sides.
The attack came in the wake of last weeks incident in which three villagers were killed and six injured after [muslim]Orma herdsmen attacked [Christian]Pokomo villagers.The Christians in Kenya, at least, are hitting back.
The attack occurred after cattle owned by the Orma strayed into Pokomo farmlands and destroyed crops.
The farmers attacked the herdsmen and slashed some of their animals, which police said were 200.
The [muslim]herdsmen regrouped and attacked a [Christian]Pokomo village, killing three villagers. It was after that the Pokomos hit back.
This is why the Gopvernment wants your gun.
So you cannot defend yourself from attacks like this.
