Kenya vigil for massacre victims

April 7, 2015 5:26 pm

Hundreds of people are holding a candle-lit vigil in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, to remember the victims of last week’s attack at Garissa University College by al-Shabab gunmen.

A temporary shrine of crosses and candles has been set up and photographs of the 148 victims are on display.

Earlier, about 2,500 people marched in Garissa in a show of defiance against the al-Qaeda-linked Somali militants.

The assault on the university was the deadliest in Kenya by al-Shabab.

The group has its headquarters in Somalia, but has stepped up attacks in Kenya in recent years.

Five Kenyans appeared in court in Nairobi on Tuesday for suspected links with the attackers.
