    An air raid on a camp packed with displaced women and children has killed at least five people and wounded 45 others, including 31 children, according to the aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres.

    The Kenyan military admitted carrying out Sunday's attack on the town of Jilib, where the camp for internally displaced persons is located, but said the raid targeted al-Shabab fighters who are linked to al-Qaeda and blamed for a string of kidnappings of aid workers and tourists on Kenya's coast.
