Kenyan armed forces are going door-to-door in a hunt to find those responsible for a second day of killings. They're going after Somali-linked Islamist militants who killed at least 15 people on Kenya's coast on Monday evening. This, less than 24 hours after an earlier assault on a nearby town left almost 50 dead. One commandant says they're working tirelessly to find those behind the attacks. (SOUNDBITE) (Swahili) GENERAL SERVICE UNIT COMMANDANT, JOEL KITILI, SAYING: "We are not sleeping; we have been working very hard since this incident. These problems are not isolated. We know you are not sleeping well too so we are doing our best." Somalia's al Shabaab militants claimed responsibility for the two days of attacks and said they would continue. The militant group has said it is punishing Kenya for sending troops to Somalia to confront Islamist fighters there.
