Kenyan police chief quits
after extremist attacks
Kenya's police chief David Kimaiyo has resigned
following an attack yesterday by Islamic extremists from Somalia that killed more than 36 people.
Kimaiyo said that he resigned for personal reasons. Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta named a former army general, Joseph Nkaisery, to replace him.
Public pressure had been mounting for the resignations of Kimaiyo and Interior
minister Joseph Ole Lenku following a previous attack
10 days ago in which 28
non-Muslims were dragged out of a bus and shot dead
by Islamic extremists.
