Al-Shabab Gunmen Massacre At Least 147 At Kenya School

At least 147 students were massacred when Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamist group attacked a Kenyan university on Thursday, the government said, after the deadliest attack in the country since US embassy bombings in 1998. Hurling grenades and firing automatic rifles, the masked gunmen stormed the university in the northeastern town of Garissa as students were sleeping, shooting dead dozens before setting Muslims free and holding Christians and others hostage. There are “147 fatalities confirmed in the Garissa attack,” the national disaster operations center said in a statement, confirming the siege was now over with all attackers dead.
