Nairobi (AFP) - Seven police officers were killed and 17 others were missing following an attack blamed on local tribesmen in Kenya's remote north, police sources said Saturday.

The officers, missing since Friday, are believed to have been ambushed during an operation in the impoverished region of Lake Turkana, the scene of regular raids and score-settlings between rival communities.
