Al-Shabab gunmen killed 14 people, mostly quarry workers, officials said, in an overnight attack on a residential complex in northeast Kenya that the Islamic militant group said had targeted Christians.Abbas Gullet, the secretary-general of Kenya Red Cross, said the workers were attacked as they slept, and that at least 11 people were wounded.Tuesday's raid will heighten pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta to beef up security in response to Shabab attacks, the worst of which killed 148 people at a university in eastern Kenya's Garissa County in April.After the Garissa attack, critics accused the security forces responding too slowly, one reason cited for the number killed in that attack.
