Kenya deploys troops to check tribal violence

Security forces move to Northern Rift region to disarm rival tribes after latest violence left 23 police officers dead.

    Kenyan security forces have been deployed to the country's North Rift region in a bid to restore order after tribal violence left at least 23 police officers dead.

    They aim to disarm tribes who have thousands of illegal firearms.

    The killing of the officers was the peak of recent tensions between two tribes who have fought for decades over cattle and grazing land.

    After oil and natural gases were discovered there, the battle over areas with these resources has intensified.
