A Kenyan government official says four people are dead after a raid by suspected Al Shabab extremists in eastern Garissa County.
Deputy county commissioner Kibet Bowen said on Tuesday the gunmen targeted police officers at a roadblock near the village of Saretho. Police killed two of the suspected extremists, he said.
He said stray bullets killed the residents during the fighting.
The Al Qaeda-linked Al Shabab has vowed retribution on Kenya for deploying its troops in 2011 to fight the extremist group in neighbouring Somalia.
Since December the group has increased attacks inside Kenya including Sunday's attack on a military base that killed three US military personnel.
Palestinians attended funerals and extricated bodies from collapsed buildings. There was no official word from Israel on any bargaining behind the ceasefire.
The militants from neighbouring Somalia attacked Kamuthe centre in Garissa county, setting fire to a police post and attempting to destroy a telecommunication mast, police said in a report seen by the media.
Burkina Faso, bordering Mali and Niger, has seen regular militant attacks which have left hundreds dead since the start of 2015 when militant violence began to spread across the Sahel region.
The violence comes even as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani last week announced his 21-member team to negotiate peace with the Taliban, only to have his political opponent, Abdullah Abdullah, reject it as not inclusive enough.
The witness added the suspect disappeared after being injured and after having bleeding in the head, and then he was seen heading towards the victim with a knife.
Abu Ghazeen noted that those vehicles give a grace period for the public to park in the public parking for a period of 10 minutes without paying fees.
"This technology has proven its effectiveness to identify suspicious and wanted people," said Obaid Al Hathboor, director of Dubai's Transport Security Department.
The suspect offered Dhs50,000, a Rolex watch, a monthly salary of Dhs20,000, and a Mercedes car as a bribe to a policeman so that he could escape from the police station where he was held on charges related to drug trafficking.
