An attack by Ethiopian armed men on a rival community in a remote region of north Kenya on the Ethiopian border left 38 people dead, a local official said yesterday.

"Security forces have been combing the area and the number of people killed by Merile militia men from Ethiopia is now 38," Rift Valley provincial commissioner Osman Warfa said.

An official in Sudan's most contested border region says renewed fighting has left at least 12 people dead this week.

Deng Arop Kuol, the chief administrator of the Abyei region, said yesterday he also feared more attacks in the weeks leading up to Southern Sudan's independence in July.

Two alleged Rwandan rebel leaders, accused of ordering massacres and mass rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), went on trial in Germany yesterday.

The DRC government welcomed the trial and called on other nations sheltering rebel leaders to follow suit. But there are doubts over how much impact it will have on the ground in eastern DRC, where civilians have endured years of abuse.

Hundreds of Somalis marched through the capital yesterday to celebrate the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who they blame for starting a trend of suicide attacks in the country.

The demonstrators chanted: "Terror, terror go away, little kids want to play."

They also burnt a flag they said was an al-Qaeda flag. "Osama is dead. No more al-Shabaab, no more terrorists," one banner read, referring to Somalia's most dangerous militant group. Members of al-Shabaab have pledged allegiance to Bin Laden and al-Qaeda. A spokesman for the group, which counts hundreds of foreign fighters among its ranks, threatened attacks in retaliation for Bin Laden's death.
