Nairobi: Kenya`s Red Cross says that at least 16 people were killed and more than 20 wounded in Kenya`s north during inter-clan clashes.

The violence took place on Sunday in Mandera County at a camp that hosts internally displaced people. Violence has been ongoing for three days between ethnic Somali clans.
Adan Keynan, a member of Parliament, said the government must send more police to stem the violence.

A police officer blamed the violence on politics. One clan feels it was left out of elective posts after Kenya`s March election.
