Thirteen Kenyan police are missing following an overnight ambush by suspected Shebab militants in the northeast of the country close to the border with Somalia, a police spokesman said Tuesday.
"There was an ambush on officers who were on patrol and as a result, 13 officers are missing," police spokesman George Kinoti said. "Two others sustained injuries and have been taken to hospital."
Local officials said more than 10 officers may have been killed in Monday night's ambush, while Kenyan media reported the number of dead could be as high as 20.
