Nairobi: At least 10 people have been killed in a new overnight attack near Kenya`s coast, police said Tuesday, with Somalia`s Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels claiming responsibility.

Police said gunmen, apparently part of the same group that massacred close to 50 people in the town of Mpeketoni overnight Sunday, attacked a village in the same region overnight on Monday and left 10 dead.
