Two police officers have been arrested in Kenya after "a shooting incident" in the eastern county of Garissa.

Kenya's national police service said an investigation into the incident is currently underway.

"The inspector general has equally directed the directorate of criminal investigations to carry out forensic analysis on the firearms used by the officers," it added.

Taking to Twitter, Garissa member of parliament Aden Duale said the officers had shot dead two people during an "arrest mission", without giving any more details.

Meanwhile, the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA), a body set up to investigate cases of police brutality, has also sent its investigators to Garissa.
