Al-Shabaab gunmen killed 29 people in twin raids near Kenya's coast on Saturday, as a foreign tourist was shot dead further south, highlighting the region's growing insecurity.


Groups armed with assault rifles raided two towns late on Saturday, breaking into a police station in one and releasing men being held for questioning.


The detainees were accused of links to June 15 terror strikes around Mpeketoni town, near the popular tourist destination of Lamu island, when 73 people died in three raids over eight days.


The latest attacks hit the towns of Hindi, which is close to Mpeketoni, and Gamba, further south. In Gamba, bloodstains marked the entrance to the police station, where one officer was killed alongside at least 19 others. Nine died in Hindi.
