Al-Shabab gunmen carried out a brutal massacre of Christian students at a university in Kenya yesterday. “Somali militants burst into a university in eastern Kenya on Thursday and killed nearly 150 students,” according to the New York Times.
The New York Times reports that “a small group of militants, most likely between four and 10, roved from dorm to dorm, separating Christian from Muslim students and killing the Christians, the authorities said. Students described being awakened before dawn by the sound of gunfire and fleeing for their lives as masked attackers closed in.”
Al-Shabab [also referred to as Shabab or al-Shabaab], a Islamist military organization from Somalia, has previously launched attacks into Kenya.
