NAIROBI, July 6 (Reuters) - At least 13 people were killed when attackers wielding guns raided two separate areas on the Kenyan coast overnight, the Kenyan Red Cross said on Sunday.

Four people lost their lives at Hindi trading centre in Lamu county, near the scene of attacks in which 65 people were killed last month, the Red Cross said on Twitter. Nine more people were killed in another attack in the Gamba area of Tana River county.
