At least 28 people have been killed in an attack on a bus in northern Kenya. The bus had been travelling from Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, when it stopped in Mandera county – near the Somali border.
Militant gunmen, around 10 according to eyewitnesses, reportedly separated non-Muslims from the others by asking them to read passages from the Koran. Those who failed were killed, getting shot in the head.
al-Shabaab, an extremist militant group from Somalia, has claimed responsible from the attack. They claimed that the attack was a retribution act in response to the raids on mosques in Mombasa.
The terrorist organisation had been active in Kenya since 2011.
