Tuesday: Day in photos - Kenya

A machete on a wood stump near Kiangomara village in Kenya provides a warning. Residents armed with crude weapons decided to form small groups to fight back against the Mungiki, a gang known for beheading and skinning its victims. Ensuing battles led to 24 deaths, police said.
