Gunmen from Islamic extremist group al-Shabab were suspected in an attack that killed one person and severely wounded three others on Sunday in the northern Kenyan county of Mandera, which borders Somalia and has experienced a string of attacks in recent months, a police official said.

The official, who insisted on anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak with the media, said the victims were believed to be non-Muslims. The attack comes two days after gunmen attacked the convoy of Mandera Gov. Ali Roba, killing four people including two policemen. Roba survived the attack.
