Another Random Attack In Kenya

Al-Qaeda-linked gunman storm college campus, shoot Christians

At least 14 people were killed, 65 injured and hundreds were unaccounted for Thursday after al Qaeda-linked gunmen stormed a college campus in Kenya.

…Al Shabab, an al Qaeda-linked terror group based in neighboring Somalia, claimed responsibility for the pre-dawn attack. Sheik Abdiasis Abu Musab, the group’s military operations spokesman, said many Christians were being held by the militants. “We sorted people out and released the Muslims,” he told Reuters.

Robert Godec, the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, condemned what he called a “heinous terrorist attack” by al Shabab.

Collins Wetangula, the vice chairman of the student union, said he was preparing to take a shower when he heard gunshots.

When the gunmen arrived at his dorm he could hear them opening doors and asking if the people who had hidden inside whether they were Muslims or Christians. “If you were a Christian, you were shot on the spot,” Wetangula told The Associated Press. “With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”

A few more attacks like this and poor Kenya will be like Indiana.

Update: now it’s over 70 147 dead.

    The world seemed like such a better place when I was young. Maybe it wasn’t, but I just didn’t know any better. I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then.
