* Authorities in Kenya have deployed dozens of regular and paramilitary security personnel in central Laikipia region to track down suspected armed Pokot ethnic herdsmen who killed six officers and injured four others on Wednesday. The police officers died in a shootout with the raiders after the armed livestock herders ambushed them as they patrolled the expansive and volatile Kamwenje area in Laikipia West.
