Rustlers armed with machetes and rifles raided 30 nomad camps in a remote part of northwestern Kenya, killing 192 people and wounding 50, the government said. The rustlers made off with about 3,500 cattle, sheep, goats and donkeys, officials said, adding that 40 of the 50 rustlers were captured or killed and about 3,000 animals recovered. The sky over the massacre scene was black with vultures, the independent newspaper Sunday Nation said.

After a 19-month trial, a judge on Monday convicted a prominent dissident of attempted robbery and sentenced him to four years in prison and six lashes with a cane. Koigi wa Wamwere was convicted in connection with what the government said was an attack on a police station in 1993.

Your State Department advisory regarding robberies in Kenya and in particular the Masai Mara (News & Briefs, March 8) troubled me because I have just returned from this wonderful country and its popular game park for the second time. Never did I feel threatened nor did I ever feel suspicious of any Kenyan. To the contrary, they (made me) feel very special and treated me with the utmost respect and courtesy. I take with great offense that Kenya was singled out as an "alert" to tourists as I uphold East Africa as my favorite, special corner of the world.
