On April 2nd 147 Kenyan students were killed at Garissa University College. The Somali based terror group Al-Sabaab, an affiliate of Al Qaeda claimed responsibility. The Thursday attack by al-Shabaab militants slaughtered 147 individuals, including 142 students, three security officers and two college security faculty. The attack left 104 individuals harmed, incorporating 19 who are in critical condition. According to Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery.
The attackers separated students by religion, allowing Muslims to leave and keeping an obscure number of Christians hostage, Agence France-Presse reported. At one point, the gunmen protrolled a building where 360 students lived, Inside Minister Joseph Nkaissery said.
Kenyan security strengths moved in and slaughtered four gunmen.
Students said Kenya’s army eventually encompassed the campus yet didn’t overcome Shabab or convey an end to the killings. A crack police squad, the General Administration Unit, didn’t arrive until about 4:30 p.m., 11 hours after the attack, according to Kenyan media reports. The police finished the attack 30 minutes later.
Angry students and their parents question why the Garissa campus was left so inadequately guarded, especially after late, broadly circulated knowledge warnings of an impending attack on a college. Understudies from a neighboring teachers school in Garissa were sent home Tuesday, two days prior to the attack, because of the uncertain security situation.
