KOROME, Kenya (Reuters) - Somali al Shabaab militants killed 36 non-Muslim workers at a quarry in northeast Kenya, they said, beheading at least two of them in the same area that they hijacked a bus and killed 28 passengers a week ago.

A village elder at Korome, near the site of the attack, said gunmen crept up on dozens of workers as they slept in tents around the quarry at about 1 a.m. (2200 GMT).
