The shooting began when the militants arrived at the farm where they were working before gathering them around.

They were armed to the teeth with machine guns that every one of them possessed sending fear into the group.

One of the survivors said he asked for permission to light a cigarette before the shooting began and he managed to escape.

A woman, who was also part of the survivors, is reported to have been shot at the back as she ren but managed to hide in the bushes.

The government of Tanzania has responded to the attacks as security forces patrol the borders where the deadly group made their way into the country.

This is the second border attack to occur as in June another group of militants attacked a village killing eleven people in the process.
