At least 32 Kenyan police officers were confirmed killed when armed cattle rustlers ambushed them in the remote northern county of Samburu on Saturday, a government official said on Monday.

Officials had previously put the death toll at 12.

"We have recovered more bodies, we now have 32 in total. They were ambushed by attackers bearing sophisticated weapons, including machine guns," Osman Warfa, provincial commissioner for the vast Rift Valley province, told Reuters.

Warfa said authorities were searching for more bodies.
