Dozens killed in attack in northern Kenya

At least 36 people were killed Tuesday after gunmen attacked a stone quarry in the northern Kenyan town of Mandera.

The Muslims and non-Muslims were separated, sources told Al Jazeera, and the dead were reportedly miners working at the quarry, located 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) from the Somali border. Militants from the Al-Shabaab group are suspected to have carried out the attack, CNN reports, with about 20 gunmen targeting the site.

Last month, at least 28 people were killed when militants ambushed a bus headed to Nairobi from Mandera. Al-Shabaab began attacking targets in Kenya in 2011, when the country went to Somalia to fight against the extremists.
