The death toll in an attack by gunmen on the Kenyan coastal town of Mpeketoni rose to at least 48 people, the Kenya Red Cross and police said on Monday.
Militants targeted two hotels, a bank and a police station with guns and at least one explosive device. The assault on Sunday night was the latest in a string of attacks that have hurt Kenya’s tourism business, a key source of foreign exchange.
