Thursday, April 2, will be remembered in Kenya as one of its saddest days: a total of 148 young students were killed by Somali Islamist group Al Shabab in the University College of Garissa. The world has once again shown its solidarity with the victims of this brutal massacre.
The terrible massacre took place in the University College of Garissa, on April 2. The attack was carried out by Somalian Islamist group Al Shabab. According to the investigation, Dulyadin Gamadhere is involved in the attack, a former professor at an Islamic school who is being searched for across the country, and for whom a substantial reward is being offered.
The attack began on the afternoon of Thursday, April 2, when a group not exceeding ten armed men accessed the campus facilities, killing the two guards. Later in the various departments of the university, the terrorists were firing indiscriminately against the students who were there.
The President of Kenya, H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta, declared three days of national mourning. Likewise, the major international institutions such as the African Union and governments around the world have condemned this barbaric act, while the Pope during Mass on Easter Sunday sent a message of remembrance for the young people killed.
