Garissa University Attack Kills 70 In Kenya

An attack on Garissa University in Kenya by al-Shabaab militants has killed at least 70 hostages, with another 79 injured and over 500 students rescued.

At least 70 hostages have been killed in an attack by al-Shabaab Islamist militants on a university in north-eastern Kenya, officials say.

At least 79 were injured while more than 500 students were rescued from the Garissa University College campus, disaster management officials said.

Interior Minster Joseph Nkaiserry said four of the attackers had been killed, and security operations were ongoing.

Reports from the scene suggest that most of the campus was under the control of the Kenyan troops, and the majority of the threat was over.

An overnight, 6.30pm to 6.30am, curfew has been announced for four regions near the Somali border.
