Kenya university massacre

April 3, 2015 6:41 pm

Kenya has vowed not to bow to terrorist threats, a day after a massacre which left 147 people dead at the hands of Al Shabaab gunmen.

On Thursday four Al Qaeda-linked fighters stormed the campus of Garissa University College, near the border with Somalia in an attack that also left 79 injured.

The day-long siege ended in a hail of heavy gunfire.

“Kenya’s government will not be intimidated by the terrorists who have made killing innocent people a way to humiliate the government,” interior minister Joseph Nkaissery told reporters.

“The government is determined to fight back the terrorists, and I am confident we shall win this war against our enemies.”

Emergency workers have set about collecting those bodies that still sit around the campus, while Kenyan soldiers patrol the university.
