Kenya hostage siege ends after police kill gunman

A suspected al-Shabab gunman who had taken hostages at a police station in north-western Kenya has been shot dead, police say.

The man had snatched a gun after he was arrested for being a suspected recruiter for the Islamist militant group, which is based in Somalia.

He killed at least six officers during a siege which lasted about eight hours at the station in Kapenguria town.

At one stage he was reported to have been firing sniper shots from a roof.
