Kenya University 'Nightmare'

Sat, 04/04/2015 - 13:08 -- Henri Ahyite

Grieving relatives were Friday searching for news or the remains of their loved ones after Somalia's Shebab Islamists massacred 147 in a university in northeastern Kenya. The day-long siege of Garissa University was Kenya's deadliest attack since the 1998 US embassy bombings and the biggest ever by the Al-Qaeda-affiliated militants, although the Kenyan government vowed it would not be "intimidated". Survivors recounted how the gunmen from Somalia's Shebab fighters taunted students before killing them, including forcing them to call their parents to urge them to call for Kenyan troops to leave Somalia
