The police in Kenya said at least 12 persons were killed in land clashes in the west of the country last weekend.

Police spokesman, Eric Kiraithe said several persons were burnt to death, while others were shot dead.

Armed police have reportedly been deployed to the Mount Elgon area in pursuit of the raiders, but no arrests have been made.

According to BBC reports, it is unclear if the clashes are linked to election clashes, which killed some 1,500 people this year.
