Police: 24 dead in central Kenya clashes

CLASHES between residents and members of an outlawed criminal gang erupted in central Kenya overnight, killing 24 people, police said today.

The Mungiki criminal gang, notorious for beheading and mutilating victims, is Kenya's version of the mafia and is involved in extortion and racketeering rings, protection fees, kidnapping and murder, police say.

"So far investigators have confirmed that 24 people have been killed and three have been seriously injured," the police said in a statement.
