Attack on police in Garissa, Kenya

Editor's note: @BBC Africa correspondent Tomi Oladipo is reporting more than 20 police officers dead in an overnight ambush in Garissa, Kenya, citing local media reports. Al-Shabaab militants are the suspected attackers. In a conflicting report, a police spokesman says 13 officers are missing and two wounded. Kenya's Interior Ministry is denying the media reports of a death toll, and has reported five officers as wounded, with one in critical condition. We'll update as the situation becomes clearer. - Rebecca
