How doomed mission claimed 42 policemen

13 November 2012, 08:36

Nairobi - The Standard reports that the full horror of the bandit attack on police in Samburu is out; 42 out of 107 deployed to track down armed cattle rustlers were killed.

Several more are missing and the picture the survivors paint, cruelly written with the blood of the fallen heroes some freshly out of college and dispatched to the treacherous duty, is blood-curdling massacre.
