Gunmen have shot dead a police officer who was guarding two Cuban doctors in a road ambush in Mandera town.
In the daring attack that was staged a few minutes after 9am right in the middle of the northern-Kenya town, the armed assailants in a small car first blocked the vehicle ferrying the medics to work.
According to witnesses, they then alighted and opened fire on the police officer, killing him instantly.
They then bundled the two health workers into their car and drove off in what is suspected to be an abduction.
The fate of the foreign doctors from Havana was not immediately clear as security officials are yet to issue a statement.
