Insurgents sprayed a police patrol with gunfire near the border town of Liboi, also leaving some officers badly wounded, in the latest in a string of attacks in the restive region.

"Five were killed on the spot when they were ambushed out on patrol, and we are told many bullets were fired on their vehicle," said a senior police officer who asked not to be named. "Three civilians were also killed in the attack."

Two other policemen were badly wounded, he added.

The identity of the perpetrators remains unclear, but such attacks against police and other targets are frequent along Kenya
