At least 42 Kenyan police officers have been killed by thieves stealing cattle.
Officials claim the robbers used sophisticated weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades during an ambush at the weekend.
The death toll has been rising since Saturday, with more and more bodies discovered in the forest.
The ambush happened in Suguta Valley, part of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley. The killers are believed to be from Turkana – also in the Great Rift Valley.
Several people, including officers, are being treated in hospital and members of the force are still missing.
It is the deadliest attack on police in Kenya.
Cattle thieves killed 13 people in a neighbouring community during another raid two weeks ago.
